The depletion of fossil resources, increasing prices, demand, and global warming worries have all contributed to the urgency with which individuals are searching for sustainable alternative fuels. Some microalgae strains collect more lipids, develop faster, and produce more photosynthetic energy than land plants, making them a promising candidate as a biofuel feedstock. Although algae biofuels show promise as an alternative to fossil fuels, several challenges must be conquered before they can successfully compete in the fuel market and be widely embraced. Strain identification and improvement for oil productivity and farming techniques, fertilizer and budget utilization and usage, and co-product generation to enhance the system's overall profitability are all issues that need to be addressed. There is much more to be done in the sector, even though there is much enthusiasm about the possibilities of algal biofuels. Algae's generation capacity was all the rage in the green technology scene a decade ago. Compared to traditional feed stocks derived from plant commodities like sugar cane and maize, or even vegetable and animal waste streams, algae fuel, also referred to as third-generation biofuel, offers many significant benefits. In light of recent successes in genome editing in microalgae, we emphasize prospects for speeding up the strain incentive programme.
