Microalgae are alternative source for biodiesel production due to the prospective high oil content in its cells and fast generation to yield a higher biomass. The focus of the study was to provide a feasibility study on the potential of a local isolated strain for biodiesel production comprising of cell growth, micro algae from the local ponds, which are grown in tubs at laboratory by open pond cultivation system with addition of nutrients to it, the grown algae dried under shade dry, weigh the amount of dried powder and extracted for the oils in the culture for the production of biodiesel, The dried sample was weighed and the sample was in extracted in Soxhlet extractor with the help of the solvents like n-hexane, chloroform and methanol (2:1) ratio. The solvents dissolved in lipped extract was evaporated by rotator evaporation system. Lipped extract remains in it eventually by transesterification, the pure biodiesel was obtained.
