Abstract
Nowadays world is suffered by the twin crisis of fossil fuel depletion and environmental degradation. We need to produce an alternative fuel that must be readily available and environmental friendly. BIO- DIESEL from Mahua oil has high potential to become alternative fuel to replace diesel fuel. Initially the Mahua oil has high viscosity which cannot be directly used in the diesel engines. There are different methods to reduce the viscosity of Mahua oil. In this project trans esterification process is used to reduce the viscosity of oil. Because of high free fatty acids in Mahua oil two step acid-base catalyst transesterification processes is used for producing the BIO-DIESEL. And the results based on physical properties of BIO-DIESEL produced from Mahua oil were close to the properties of diesel and efficiency test will be carried out.
