Abstract

<p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 200%; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman">Comparison of the optimum conditions for biodiesel production from pure palm cooking oil (PPCO) and waste palm cooking oil (WPCO) through transesterification process using alkaline catalysts was studied. Some important variables such as volumetric ratio and types of reactants, catalytic activities were selected to obtain a high quality biodiesel fuel that comply with the specification of <span style="COLOR: black; mso-bidi-font-family: BFNEGF+TimesNewRoman">standard methods (ASTM D 6751 &amp; EN 14214). The highest yield of approximately 99% acquired under optimum conditions of </span><span style="mso-bidi-language: #0845">1:6 volumetric oil-to-methanol molar ratio, 1% KOH catalyst, 40&deg;C reaction temperature and 320 rpm stirring speed. </span><span style="COLOR: black">Results showed that the production of biodiesel from PPCO &amp; WPCO was exhibited no considerable differences. The research demonstrated that biodiesel obtained under optimum conditions from PPCO &amp; WPCO was of good quality and could be used as a diesel fuel. Waste cooking palm oil after frying could be used as recycled material for waste management to produce renewable energy.</span><strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal"><o:p></o:p></strong></font></font></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 200%; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><v:line id="_x0000_s1026" style="Z-INDEX: 1; LEFT: 0px; POSITION: absolute; TEXT-ALIGN: left" to="6in,20.05pt" from="0,20.05pt"><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"></font></v:line><font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman"><strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal"><span style="COLOR: black">Keywords: </span></strong><span style="COLOR: black">biodiesel; transesterification; palm oil; waste cooking oil</span></font></font><span style="COLOR: black; mso-bidi-font-family: BFNEGF+TimesNewRoman"><o:p></o:p></span></p>
