Аннотация: Biodiesels are known as ecofriendly and biodegradable fuels. The unique properties in Biodiesel like high Cetane number and excess molecular oxygen helps the combustion complete with regulated emission. To mitigate the challenges of diesel engine exhaust emissions like NOx, HC, CO, CO2, PM and Smoke, biodiesel from different feed stocks of animal and plant oils are used. It has already proved experimentally that biodiesel can be used as an alternative fuel without changing the basic design of the existing engines. Despite of their advantages their practical application was limited to experimental stage this is due to the fact its high production cost. In this research an attempt was made to reduce the initial raw oil cost by utilizing the low cost feed stock of used cooking oil which was available at free of cost. In order to maximize the biodiesel yield advanced optimization techniques of Taguchi and Definitive screening design was adopted.

Algae are potential feedstocks that can be used for the production of biofuels and thus providing solution for the challenges of energy crisis and environmental greenhouse gasses. Several companies and government agencies are funding efforts to reduce capital and operating costs and make algae fuel production commercially viable.Harvested algae,...
