Heterogeneous Catalyst derived from Natural Resources for Biodiesel Production: A Review

  title={Heterogeneous Catalyst derived from Natural Resources for Biodiesel Production: A Review},
  author={Sanjay Basumatary},
Heterogeneous catalysts are receiving more importance for the transesterification of triglycerides present in any oils or fats to produce biodiesel. They are reusable, environmentally benign, could give high quality of products, and more effective than acid catalysts and enzymes for biodiesel production. Recently, heterogeneous catalysts derived from both waste industrial and biological resources have attracted interest for biodiesel synthesis. In this paper, it is attempted to review on recent… Expand
