Waste Vegetable Oils, Fats, and Cooking Oils in Biodiesel Production
Contribution to Books
Handbook of Environmental Engineering: Integrated Natural Resources Research
This chapter provides a critical overview of the methods of biodiesel production from waste oily by-products from edible oil refinery, waste fats, and waste cooking oils with emphasis on factors that impact the synthesis of fatty acids alkyl esters. The aim is to show exploitation possibilities of the mentioned waste materials for making biodiesel. Various technologies such as chemical (homogeneous and heterogeneous) and enzyme catalysis as well as non-catalytic processes have been applied in biodiesel production from waste oils, fats, and cooking oils. The future commercial process of biodiesel production will be a choice among solid catalysts, lipases, and non-catalytic processes.
