Microalgal biodiesel is a promising alternative fuel because of the following: 1) its high productivity in comparison with crops oil 2) it does not affect food production, and 3) its lower emissions and potential to reduce environmental pollution.The aims of this work are firstly to produce and extract lipid from a fresh water microalgae Chlorella vulgaris using iron as a stress treatment to achieve high lipid content. Secondly, the physical and chemical properties of Chlorella vulgaris and Chlorella protothecoides oil will be compared with diesel and biodiesel from other sources.
