This review introduces a new approach of completely marine based bioethanol production by analyzing and evaluating the recent trends in bioethanol fermentations using algae, marine microorganisms and the replacement of freshwater with seawater. Both macroalgae and microalgae have been successfully used for bioethanol production. Marine yeasts showed excellent tolerance to salt and inhibitors, and fit for seawater fermentation. The combination of marine biomass, marine microorganism and seawater has a potential for a greener bioethanol production.
