This review paper analyses the performance and emission of waste cooking methyl esters. The main objective of this paper is to study of performance and emission characteristics of WCME. The performance and emission indicators such as brake power, BTE, EGT, BSFC, NOx, CO, CO2, HC and smoke opacity-have been estimated in comparison to diesel fuel. the result showed that different sources of biodiesel feedstocks gives different results to engine performance and emission. Most of the research papers yielded favourable results towards the biodiesel as compared to diesel fuel. This study revealed that waste cooking methyl esters can be used in CI engine as a replacement of diesel fuel.
