Abstract

Red macroalgae are being actively investigated as a renewable biomass source because of their advantageous characteristics such as abundant carbohydrate contents, low lignin contents, and the absence of conflicts with food production. With recent technological advances, the efficient utilization of red macroalgae for biofuel and chemical production is now possible.
