Introduction of Biodiesel as a Sustainable Resource
Author(s): Sylvia Adipah
Increasing population, economy and rapid urbanization have accelerated in the use of bioenergy. The conditions and factors surrounding the expectation and realities of non-edible oils for biodiesel are necessitating efforts to diversify feedstock. Modern technology for bioenergy can be used as biofuel for transport as well as biomass for heat and electricity production. Currently, biodiesel can be produced from edible plant oils such as soybean, rapeseed, palm and sunflower. In this study, we aim at the importance of using biodiesel as a renewable energy.
