In this study, plant oils were extracted from a wide variety of seeds to evaluate their potential as possible feedstocks for biodiesel production. The extracted oils were investigated by determining acid value, free fatty acids, tocopherol concentration, iodine value, density, water content and kinematic viscosity, etc. Afterwards, biodiesel was produced through esterification in the presence of methanol by using acid catalyst followed by transesterification with alkali catalyst, particularly… CONTINUE READING
