The objective of this paper is to assess the impact on fuel saving and emission reduction of biodiesel for power generation, using a wide range of economic indicators. There are many benefits that countries, especially developing ones can gain from renewable fuels like biodiesel. Apart from the possibilities that opens for economic growth and development across the country, especially for rural communities; opportunities are available for independent power producers to generate power to off-grid users and local businesses. This is only achievable from engines and fuels with good economic performance. This paper analyse the impact of Callophyllum inophyllum (CI) biodiesel on the fuel saving and the carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reduction, focusing on the application of CI biodiesel in two different systems, namely internal combustion engines in the transport sector and gas turbines in the power sector. The results showed that application of CI biodiesel in the power sector is able to have more significant savings in fuel and reduction in the CO2 emissions.
