Dear Conference delegates
I am happy to write a welcome note for Biofuels-2022. The world's increasing fuel demand has put tremendous pressure on traditional fossil fuels, which are not only getting exhausted but also a major concern for global pollution. In this regard, microalgal biofuels seem to be one of the most promising options as they are tiny reservoirs of the constiuetns that can be processed for generating biofuel. The recent deveopments in biotechnology, especially in the 'omics' technologies, has intensified the research of microalgae-based biofuel and its potential commercial prospects. Further, the economics of production may be improved by developing a competent and robust biorefinery for producing biofuels along with other value-added products. Therefore, microalgae developed with 'omics' technologies may yield into a renewable and sustainable source of energy. I hope that deleberations in the conefernce would be fruitful and open up newer approaches towards developing an economical and sustainable resource for biofuel generation.
