The Study of Different Biodiesel Production from Various Resources and Its Properties - An Overview

Authors(2) :-A. T. Navin Prasad, G. Anbarasu

Biodiesel is a renewable resource of energy which helps to reduce the dependence on the limited economy resources available in the world. The present research work is an approach towards attaining price competency of biodiesel to petroleum diesel. Biodiesel either directly or blended with diesel fuel is widely investigated to reduce the depletion of fossil fuels and environmental degradation. There has been growing interest in alternative fuels like biodiesel, a best substitute fuel for internal combustion engines. This paper reviews the biodiesel from various resources, different methodologies used for biodiesel production and the properties of different biodiesel. Biodiesel is an eco-friendly, alternative diesel fuel produced from vegetable oils and animal fats. Biodiesel can be used as a fuel for vehicles in its pure form, but it is usually used as a blended fuel (Diesel and Biodiesel) to reduce levels of particulates, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons from diesel powered vehicles. The main objective of this study is the development of biodiesel by various methods and fuel-related properties.
