Globally, there is depletion of fossil fuels and rise in energy demand due to population and industrial growth and this has caused a need for finding alternative fuels that are less harmful and can bring about energy security within a country. These findings have been going under intensive search leading to biofuels such as “Biodiesel” which has been proved to be fossil that is promising for the future however due to the fact that different feedstocks with different origins are used within the production, an issue has been risen with regards to metal contents which is said to be a downfall as it cause damage in engines and decrease the longevity as well as the quality of the fuel. This study presents the types of catalyst required for production of an efficient and effective biodiesel from waste vegetable oils as well as the sources and effects of metals in the biodiesel.
Audience Take Away:
- The findings of catalyst preparation for biodiesel production?
- The elemental analysis of the biodiesel from different blends.
- The effects of the elements in the biodiesel.
