A Review of Microalgal Strain Selection for Biodiesel

Biofuel is a potential source of sustainable energy that could contribute to future energy demand. Microalgae have various possible advantages for biofuel production over crops. Large-scale cultivation of microalgae does not compete for land, and theoretically microalgae may produce 10 to 100 fold more biodiesel per acre.
