Optimizing of Biodiesel Production: A Review

Sharun Mendonca, Thirumaleshwara Bhat


Abstract: 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
