Increasing global demand for petroleum-based fuel leads to energy shortage and environmental pollution. To solve this problem, many countries are taking steps to develop alternative fuels. Biodiesel, which contains fatty acid methyl esters, is a biomass-derived fuel that can replace petro-diesel because both have similar properties. The usage of biodiesel as a petro-diesel alternative has recently received considerable attention because it is technically feasible, environmentally acceptable, and fully compatible with existing diesel engines. In addition, biodiesel is a sustainable biofuel because it can be derived from a variety of edible and nonedible oil feedstock. On the basis of such merits, numerous studies have focused on developing more efficient, economical, and safer processes for biodiesel production. Our team has been focused on developing green and energy-efficient processes for biodiesel production from plant oil, waste oil, and insect fat. Young excellent students are welcome to visit our lab and work with us to develop processes for biodiesel production and make contribution to protect environment and preserve natural resources.
