An integrated approach to achieve technological and biotechnological breakthroughs
Because of their high surface productivity, their ability to accumulate large amounts of lipids while absorbing CO2 by photosynthesis, microalgae are often seen as a promising bioresource plant for industrial and sustainable biodiesel production . However, many biological and technological breakthroughs remain to be developped before considering large-scale and economically viable production.
