Abstract
Biodiesel is a most favored as an alternative substitute for the conventional diesel fuel. Various feedstock of animal fat and plant oil are used for production of biodiesel.Biodiesel helps in completion of the carbon life cycle. Maritime transport is one of the most important mode of transport in the world. Maritime transport is increasing day by day and it plays a very important role in the world’s maritime environment and economy. But consumption of the fuel in the maritime transportation, increases the harmful emissions and thereby caused the polluting sea environment. Because of the sea pollution the ecology and biodiversity of the marine environment cycle drastically disturbed. With the current trend in the fuel consumption by the marine sector, and associated industries and new regulations are in place related to fuel requirements, there is a very large and strong demand for the biofuel-biodiesel. The use of biodiesel in the marine sector, itself is an innovative opportunity, in order to reduce the GHG and harmful emissions from the marine environment. This will also give an opportunity to the associated marine industries to develop the sustainable supply chain in order to build strong bio based economy.
