Abstract: In my degree I will be looking to increase the productivity of microalgae with respect to biodiesel production. My research will focus on increasing the lipid production while using different waste streams as a source of nutrients. The objective of this project is to obtain biodiesel as a renewable source of energy while re-utilizing materials that are considered waste in the industry, therefore making the biodiesel production "greener" and more economically feasible.
