  With a constantly increasing population and due to heavy load on arable lands for growing commercial crops the large scale and economically viable biofuel production on land seems a challenge to meet the huge and increasing global energy demand. The use of “bioenergy crops” for generating biofuels is a recent notion and full of potentials. Nevertheless, the use of arable land and clearing of forest for generating biofuel negates the greener aspects of this technology by enhancing greenhouse gas emission [1], making the process less sustainable. The challenge of generating cleaner and economically viable fuel can be sought by employing algae as feedstock instead of bioenergy crops.
