Recent developments in biodiesel productions


The increasing energy demand encourages the search of new energy or renewable energy to replace the conventional fossil fuels. Biodiesel has attracted substantial interest as a potential substitute to the currently non-renewable fuels due to its biodegradability and environmentally benign nature. Biodiesel can be produced from multiple sources by different production processes among which transesterification is the most widely exploited process. This article reviews the developments of biodiesel production from heterogenous catalyst in enhancing the reaction and also the use of multi-feedstock production in order to solve the shortage of raw materials. This review also further describes optimization in biodiesel production and process intensification which may increase the conversion yield of biodiesel.
