Abstract

Background: The unremarkably identified renewable fuels commonly known are bioethanol and biodiesel. However, there are various types of fuels that are being globally investigated. These embrace bio-butanol, bio-jet fuel, bio-renewable diesel, bio-hydrogen, bio-toluene and various alternative organic compounds. There’s hefty chance for innovation in many areas as well as biomass handling and transportation, biomass size, biomass pretreatment, conversion of pre-treated biomass into biofuel. The bioactive potential of the 3 marine algae of common incidence in Chilika Lake of Odisha, specifically Chaetomorpha linum, Enteromorpha intestinalis and Gracilaria verrucosa for their utilization of potential biofuel production has been investigated.
Objective: The main purpose of this work was to produce biodiesel from three marine macroalgae Chaetomorpha linum, Enteromorpha intestinalis and Gracilaria verrucosa using transesterification process.
Materials and Methods: The three marine macroalgae sample were collected from Chilika Lake. The biomass dried with sunlight and converted into powder by mortar and pestle. Biodiesel was produced by the transesterification process.
Conclusion: A detailed study on the 3 marine macroalgae, their conservation, identification, maintenance in outlined substance, their growth dynamics and lipid content are undertaken to seek out their potentiality for production of biodiesel.
