Abstract
    Among different biodiesel production technologies, microalgae biodiesel production has exhibited largest potential as an substitute of fossil fuels. Microalgae are effective photosynthetic microorganisms and ideal materials for biodiesel production because they have many advantages, such as the high lipid content, fast growth rate and good adaptability. Most key factor for the industrialization of microalgae biodiesel production is selecting the microalgae with rich lipid, which determines the production cost of microalgae biodiesel. The different breeding technologies of microalgae can significantly shorten the breeding time, reduce the production cost and obtain expected strains. The prospect of microalgael application in biodiesel production was also discussed.
