    Rapid increase in the growth of the population, the demand of the energy is also increasing but the available fossil fuels are declining rapidly. The demand of biofuels produced from the biomass is extensively measured as one of the main substitutable alternatives of the fossil fuels with potential of energy conservation, economic balancing and ecological friendly. The concept of biofuel production from diatoms are very appreciable and substitutable because they have acquire huge biomass yield, oils which contain large amount of lipids, rapid growth rate, prospect of using uncultivable fields, ability to grow in wastewater, marine water as well as in moist soil, capability of solar light utilization and acceptance of carbon dioxide as a source of their nutrient. This chapter elaborates the potential application of diatom as a viable source of energy for the purpose of biofuel production and the technological advancements.
