Biodiesel refers to a vegetable oil- or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl esters. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids with an alcohol. Biodiesel is commonly produced by the transesterification of the vegetable oil or animal fat feedstock. The surge of interest in biodiesels has highlighted a number of environmental effects associated with its use. These potentially include reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, pollution and the rate of biodegradation. This book studies biodiesel including National Biodiesel Board, transesterification, biodiesel by region, and environmental impact of palm oil.
