Most microalgae are autotrophic and capable of growing much faster than land
plants, requiring only sunlight, water, carbon dioxide, and inorganic nutrients to
synthesize organic compounds. Some microalgae are mixotrophic and/or
heterotrophic, which means they can use organic carbon substrates for cell
growth with or without light. Currently, limited species of microalgae can be
considered as candidate strains for commercial cultivation by autotrophic or
heterotrophic culture.
