Project: Production of biodiesel from raw palm oil

project duration
01-APR-06 – 30-SEP-06
Non-refined palm oil is converted into biodiesel (fatty acid methyl esters) by a combination of interesterification and esterification without refining of the palm oil. The production is a one reactor process with a minimum of reagents and effluent. The biodiesel is in accordance with the EU-standards except for the cloud point.
