Crude Palm Oil (CPO): Based on few criteria, palm oil is the most potential vegetable oil which can be used as raw material to manufacture biodiesel and on the other hand the usage of CPO consider to be the most wanted palm oil products for its cheap price and readiness for downstream processing . Crude palm oil is meant to anticipate oversupply.
Biodiesel is one of the liquid biofuels that has been successfully evaluated as diesel substitute and gained worldwide acceptance (Choo et al. , 2005). Today, many countries have mandated or given incentives for the use of biodiesel, whether derived from palm, soyabean, rapeseed or other feedstock in their diesel fuel. The leading countries in producing […]
Process design Fig. 1 shows the superstructure of the proposed biodiesel production process from waste cooking palm oil with different types of catalyst. In the figure, the variable Y i is varied, depending on the available streams; when the value Y i is equal to one, such a stream has to be considered.
As major producer of palm oil, Malaysia through MPOB has carried out extensive R&D on the production of biodiesel from palm oil and its products since the 1980s. MPOB has now become one of the successful technology providers for the production of biodiesel with the building of its first commercial plant in 2006.
Chapter 2 Introduction to Biodiesel Production 2.1 Introduction Biodiesel [1–5] is a liquid biofuel obtained by chemical processes from vegetable oils or animal fats and an alcohol that can be used in diesel engines, alone or blended with diesel oil. ASTM International (originally known as the American Society for Testing and
This paper describes the process analysis for the methanolysis of crude palm oil through the esterification and the subsequent two-step transesterification in the biodiesel production plant with a ...
stock usage are intimately related. Feedstocks for biodiesel production vary with location according to climate and availability. Generally, the most abundant commodity oils or fats in a particular region are the most common feedstocks. Thus, rapeseed and sunflower oils are princi-pally used in Europe for biodiesel production, palm oil

Total world production of vegetable oil for all purposes in 2005/06 was about 110 million tonnes, with about 34 million tonnes each of palm oil and soybean oil. As of 2018, Indonesia is the world's top supplier of palmoil-based biofuel with annual production of 3.5 million tons,   and expected to export about 1 million tonnes of biodiesel.
In 2007, the main vegetable oils used in biodiesel production were canola oil (53%), soybean oil (18%), palm oil (14%), sunflower oil (8%) and others (7%). At present, the EU is a major region in the world for the development and utilization of biodiesel.
