Biotechnologic processes based on microalgae cultivations have had an increasing interest from the early 2000s. Microalgae are microorganisms able to produce and accumulate a large variety of industrially relevant compounds starting from renewable and cheap resources. However, 3–10 € per kg of dry biomass is the minimum cost for microalgae biomass production that has been estimated by different studies published in 2016. This high cost restricts industrial applications only to the production of high-value products. The new strategies that are being investigated by scientific research to improve economic and environmental sustainability of microalgae biomass production will be described in this chapter.
