Waste Frying/cooking oil conversion to Biodiesel

What is it about?

Effects of different reaction parameters on transesterification reaction for biodiesel production have been critically reviewed. Influence of governing process factors viz. feedstock (used vegetable oil) quality, catalyst type, temperature, alcohol/feed ratio, reaction time on Biodiesel yield (FAME content) have been meticulously assessed.

Why is it important?

Biodiesel is increasingly blended with conventional diesel fuel all over the globe. Thus,economic production technology pertaining to biodiesel has become very important.
