Optimizing of Biodiesel Production: A Review
Sharun Mendonca, Thirumaleshwara Bhat
The world is confronted with the clone crises of fossil fuel depletion and ecological deprivation. The random extraction and utilization of fossil fuels have led to a drop in petroleum reserves. Petroleum based fuels are obtained from restricted reserves. These limited reserves are highly concentrated in definite region of the world. Biodiesel, which is considered to be a potential alternate of straight diesel, is biodegradable, non-toxic, and renewable. The production of biodiesel from edible and non-edible oil can be optimized by using various parameters such as catalyst concentration, amount of methanol required for reaction, reaction time and reaction temperature.
Keywords: methanol, transesterification, catalyst, reaction time
