Plant Oil Biodiesel: Technologies for Commercial Production, Present Status and Future Prospects
Emerging environmental impacts and related health issues, the continuous hike in price of vehicle fuels in sync with the depletion of fossil fuels have urged considerable research to move on alternative fuel sources and there comes the word “Biofuel”. Biofuel is gaining importance and has been a major subject of research for scientists worldwide. Attention has been given to biofuels in various countries because of its positive impacts on environment and in response healthy manpower. One of the most important and concerned topic of biofuel is biodiesel.
