Biofuel from microalgae is a renewable energy, which may be instead of the fossil fuel resources in the future with decreasing of the fossil fuel daily. Microalgae have received more attention in the recent decades. This review highlights the current status, opportunity and challenge for biofuel microalgae. This review divides in four parts. First overview is discussed the typical species product biofuel in the world and the main methods of exploring new strain. Second is discussing the mechanism and approach of transfer lipid in culture processing. More specifically, an overview is given on technology to promote the lipid content through the change of the nutrition and new reactor to capture more light. Finally the harvesting, extraction and refining technology of microalgae is reviewed in this paper which can supply an outlook to the current status, opportunity and challenge.
