Algae and more so microalgae are already occupied a place in everyone’s life and also expected to be a major part of global socio-marketing dynamics as these living wonders are rich in proteins, carbohydrates, and lipoproteins of high density etc. Apart from its multiple usage likely that as bio-fertilizers; source of pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and other bio-based products; as livestock feed; in treating wastewater for better environmental management these organisms are also a renewable power house for bioenergy as it is a viable sources of biofuel which has already been experimented in different parts of the globe and also became the priority for the corporate sectors to research, innovate and commercialize as one of the best way in managing energy crisis with renewable resources like this including the government to adopt and implement. This paper is an effort to have a generic insight into these aspects and issues and the potential of algae as a concept of “biorefinery” with a little bit of categorical view on its basic and applicable domain with some special reference to the potential of few desert landscape of the world and its possible experimentations in Indian context.
