Abstract

In this study waste ayurvedic oil is used for the synthesis of biodiesel and their properties are estimated. The biodiesel is produced from waste ayurvedic oil by transesterification process. Methanol and potassium hydroxide catalyst are used in the reaction. The properties like calorific value, flash point, fire point, and specific gravity are found out and are compared with ASTM standards of biodiesel as well as properties of diesel.

Keywords: bio diesel, ayurvedic waste oil, production, properties
