Title: PROCESS FOR PRODUCTION OF BIODIESEL FROM ACID OIL

Country: INDIA

Year: 2012

Abstract: Process for production of biodiesel from acid oil is disclosed wherein acid oil is contacted with an alcohol in countercurrent manner in the presence of an acid catalyst for esterification. Esterification is followed by saponification and thereafter transesterification of triglycerides, by an alcohol in the presence of an alkaline catalyst. In the overall process Fatty acid from acid oil is contacted with alcohol in multiple countercurrent steps wherein between two steps, organic and aqueous acid phases are separated by phase separation. Esterification of the fatty acids in the acid oil with alcohol in countercurrent manner and intensified by hydrodynamics cavitation has increased the efficiency of process to such extent that ratio of alcohol to free fatty acid of acid oil has considerably been reduced.
