ABSTRACT

The importance of biodiesel production was studied and analyzed based on research papers and theses published by different authors in various e-journals. The hike in fossil fuel prices with increase in usage demands, has forced the research to find new alternatives to petroleum fuels. Despite this, there is a crucial need to protect the environment from harmful effects of fossil fuels. Biodiesel is a renewable alternate fuel substitute that can be obtained by using various chemical methods such as transesterification, acid-catalyzed methanolysis etc. detailed survey of available literature is taken to review the different research achievements on different aqueous as well as land species for producing biodiesel as an alternative fuel for a compression ignition engine, problems associated with their production, such as the oil quality and quantity and also the methodology used for their production. In addition to this, general properties of oils taken from different natural species as well as techniques of biodiesel production and utilization have been collected.
