INTRODUCTION
Algae are simple organisms that typically produce their ownfood through photosynthesis.
The difficulties in efficient biodiesel production from algae liein finding an algal strain with a highlipidcontent and a cost-effective cultivation system that is best suited to that strain.
There is also a need to provide concentratedCO

)
,
because any CO

takenout of the atmosphere by the algae is returned when thebiofuels are burned.
