The sustainable investigation results to obtain high quality biodiesel from microalgae, family Nitzchiaceae through transesterification. Due to continued demand of petroleum fuels, wildly uses and unstable deleting the supplies as well as continued accumulation of CO2 in environment, by considering all these problems, biodiesel necessary for environment and economic stability. Microalgae play an important role with this problem and providing row material to produce the biodiesel. Biodiesel able to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and making the environment pollution free. Microalgae having capacity to convert these simple substances in the atmosphere, absorbing sunlight and convert into chemical energy , microalgae having the capacity to reproduce or double in biomass within two to three days or 2 to 3 hrs. Remaining biomass also be used as nutritional supplement and fodder for animals. There are some problems on production of biodiesel on large scale or industrial level, like cost of production of dry biomass and oil extraction.
