ABSTRACT

 

Biodiesel production can be produced by enzymatic trans-esterfication of algae oil with methanol, ethanol and spirit was studied. Production of biodiesel using acidic and alkaline catalyst has been commercially implemented due to high conversion and low production time for the product and process development of biodiesel, enzymatic trans-esterification has been suggested to produce a high purity product with economic and ecofriendly process at mild reaction condition. Immobilization of lipase could be employed in production cost by reusing the enzyme. The activated carbon prepared from the Delonix regia by physical activation and characterization and ability of adsorption studies was carried out. Methanol and ethanol instead of sprit for production biodiesel process. Optimization of the functionality is necessary to reduce the cost of biodiesel production. Here this attempt is to provide an updated anthology of the studies reported on biodiesel production by using immobilization lipase.
