Biodiesel Production from Waste Cooking Oil Using Sulfuric Acid and Microwave Irradiation Processes

  title={Biodiesel Production from Waste Cooking Oil Using Sulfuric Acid and Microwave Irradiation Processes},
  author={Prafulla D. Patil and Veera Gnaneswar Gude and Harvind Kumar Reddy and Tapaswy Muppaneni and Shuguang Deng},
A comparative study of biodiesel production from waste cooking oil using sulfuric acid (Two-step) and microwaveassisted transesterification (One-step) was carried out. A two-step transesterification process was used to produce biodiesel (alkyl ester) from high free fatty acid (FFA) waste cooking oil. Microwave-assisted catalytic transesterification using BaO and KOH was evaluated for the efficacy of microwave irradiation in biodiesel production from waste cooking oil. On the basis of energy… CONTINUE READING
