Abstract
Efforts are being made throughout the World to reduce the consumption of liquid petroleum fuels wherever is possible. Biodiesel is recently gaining prominence as a substitute for petroleum based diesel mainly due to environmental considerations and depletion of vital resources like petroleum and coal. According to Indian scenario, the demand for petroleum diesel is increasing day by day hence there is a need to find out an appropriate solution. Recently,non edibleoil resources aregaining worldwide attention because they can be found easily in many parts of the world especially wastelands that are not appropriate for cultivating food crops, eliminate competition for food,more efficient, more environmentally friendly,produce useful by- products and they are more economical compared to edible oils. Jatropha curcas,Pongamia pinnata, Calophyllum inophyllum,Croton megalo carpus and Azadirachta indica are some of the major non-edible feed stocks for biodiesel production.This paper investigates the potential of Calophyllum inophyllum as a promising feedstock for biodiesel production.In this paper,several aspects such as physical and chemical properties of crude Calophyllum inophyllum oil and methyl ester,fatty acid composition,blending and engine performance and emissions of Calophyllum inophyllum methyl ester were studied.Overall, Calophyllum inophyllum appears to be an acceptable feed stock for future biodiesel production
