Comparative Study of Catalyst for Biodiesel Synthesis from Microalgae Chlorella vulgaris

Swati Sonawane [2] | Sanjaykumar Dalvi [2] | Raghunath Pokharkar [2]


Abstract: The present paper objective was to compare methanolic acid and base catalyst for direct transesterification of Chlorella vulgaris sp. dried microalgae. The microalgae were produce higher lipid content and it was applicable for synthesis of long chain alkyl ester as biodiesel liquid fuel. The microalgae sample was collected from a fresh water river resource in Maharashtra. The algae cultivation method is important part for the faster growth and high lipid productivity. The characteristic functional groups of biodiesel identified by FT-IR spectroscopy and retention time, molecular property were studied by GCMS.
