It is well known that the use of algae-based fuels is not widespread as they do not meet the necessary fuel standards. The amount of oil products obtained from traditional biomass sources exceeds that obtained from algae. However, ecology can provide more assistance in increasing the current efficiency of oil production from algae. Depending on the species, effective results can be obtained through the production of fatty acids and biofuels. The amount of fuel produced by a single species should be weighted against the amount of oil produced by a combination of species. The presence of genetic diversity, particularly in two types of algae mixtures, is unavoidable in order to improve the quality of fuel produced. The lipid obtained under genetically diverse population is highlighted in this study.
