Abstract: With organic or food waste being one of the main constituents of the total urban waste generated, it not only makes it essential to seek means for its safe disposal but at the same time reiterates the huge potential that lies with the proper utilization of such a widely available resource. Oleaginous microbes that are effective in producing or storing oil would use food waste rich in carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, and this oil in turn could be an alternative feedstock for the production of biofuels. However, there are few challenges in the process. The various challenges in this process and methods to address them are discussed in the present chapter. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature 2019.
