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.
