Microalgae cultivation is a promising methodology for solving some of the future problems of biomass production (i.e. renewable food, feed and bioenergy production). There is no doubt that in conjunction with conventional growth systems, novel technologies must be developed in order to produce the large-scale sustainable microalgae products. Here, we review some of the most promising existing microalgae biomass growth technologies and summarise some of the novel methodologies for sustainable microalgae production.
