Abstract

In this study, three types of biodiesel production methods are compared in order to maximize Reutealis trisperma biodiesel yields and it is found that the best method is esterification-neutralization-transesterification. The optimum methanol to oil molar ratio, catalyst concentration, reaction temperature, and reaction time are also determined from laboratory experiments and modeling using response surface methodology. There is excellent agreement between the predicted and experimental Reutealis trisperma biodiesel yields under optimum process conditions, with a value of 99.23 and 98.72%, respectively. The physicochemical properties of the Reutealis trisperma biodiesel also fulfill the fuel specifications of the ASTM D6751 standard.
