PRODUCTION OF BIODIESEL FROM WASTE GROUNDNUT OIL USING CATALYZED TRANSESTERIFICATION REACTION TECHNIQUE.
AbstractWaste groundnut oil can be considered as a potential waste which can be utilized as energy source and raw material for chemical processes. People worldwide use edible oil for cooking which is discarded. The increase in the energy demand was typically provided by fossil fuel, which otherwise are limited and cause serious environmental concern. This study investigated the development of biodiesel from waste groundnut oil using 1.0g KOH catalyzed transesterification reaction technique, in the presence of different concentration of ethanol (80, 60 and 40ml) respectively to produce 180, 140 and 160ml biodiesel at 60oC temperature for 30minutes time. This study shows that production of biodiesel could be a suitable alternative green material to petrodiesel.
