Abstract


Microalgae as biomass are a potential source of renewable energy and they can be
converted into energy such as biofuel oil and gas. This paper presents a brief
review on the main conversion process of microalgae becoming energy. Since
microalgae have high water content, then not all biomass energy conversion processes
can be applied. By using thermochemical process it can be produced oil and gas,
and by using biochemical process it can be produced ethanol and biodiesel. The
properties of microalgae product is almost similar to offish and vegetables oil and
therefore it can be considered as a substitute of fossil oil.
