Biodiesel, policy, Trans esterification


Fuels are of great importance in our daily life because they can be burned to produce significant amounts of energy. Fossil fuel contributes about 80% of the world’s energy needs. Most industries use diesel machines for the production process. In the transportation sector, private vehicles, buses, trucks, and ships also consume significant amounts of diesel and gasoline. Fossil oils are fuels which come from ancient animals and microorganisms. Fossil fuel formation requires millions of years. Thus, fossil oils belong to non-renewable energy sources. It is necessary to look for alternatives fuels which can be produced from resources available in atmosphere within country such as alcohol, bio diesel, vegetable oil etc. Biodiesel production is a important field of research because the relevance it gains from the rising petroleum price and its environmental advantages. This paper reviews the recent developments of Biodiesel, including the different types of biodiesel, resources of bio diesel conversion technologies and production of bio diesel. The challenges of biodiesel industry development and the biodiesel policy are discussed as well.
