Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Microalgae have been recognized to possess great potential within the bioeconomy context. Although the total market size of algae bioproducts is still relatively small, the sector has undergone impressive growth. This can be seen by the big amount of research conducted in the field. After a first Special Issue published in 2020, we are thrilled to announce a second edition of the Special Issue in Molecules entitled “Microalgae for Production of Bioproducts and Biofuels II”.

The goal of this second edition is to highlight the significant progress in the research field of microalgae by paying special attention to issues that still need to be optimized. Among them, efficient and low-cost cultivation methods, harvesting and separation of the microalgal biomass from the culture medium, pre-treatment of the algal biomass to release its components for further conversion, and possible conversion processes to obtain biofuels and/or biocompounds are the focus of this second edition. This Special Issue invites manuscripts from authors who develop algae-related processes. Authors are invited to submit original research articles covering areas of cultivation, wastewater treatment, harvesting, biomass extraction, bioproducts, biofuels, biofertilizers, biostimulants and biorefinery approaches. Reviews that make substantial advances within this field are also invited to this Special Issue.
