Overview of Manufacture of Fish Waste-Derived Biodiesel
A. S. S. Jahan | C. G. Devadason
Abstract: Energy security is crucial to the global economy as fossil fuel supplies are fast running out. and it is consequently becoming more important to develop alternate sources of energy. An alternative fuel must be inexpensive, ecologically fair, and technically practicable. Biodiesel has become a valuable alternative fuel due to its renewable source and its non-toxic and biodegradable properties. Fish wastes are a fine choice to be the feedstock as raw material to convert to biodiesel because of their high lipid content and low microbial presence. The economic potential of producing biodiesel from fish oil generated from leftover fish parts was extensively examined in this review paper.This comprehensive study has gone through a thorough literature review of the necessary components and an extensive exploration of extracting fish oil from its waste, characterizingas well as several transesterification processes for converting it into biodiesel. Therefore, this type of biodiesel can address energy related issues in the next generations.
