Biodiesel is renewable, eco-friendly, clean burning diesel replacement
that is consisted of short chain alkyl ester. Biodiesel is derived from the
transesterification of vegetables oils or animal fats with alcohol. The process has
some technical problems that must be resolved to reduce the high operation
cost. Eco-friendly physical technologies by using microwave have successfully
improved the transesterification for biodiesel production. This paper attempts to
extensively review microwave-assisted technology for biodiesel production.
Additionally, different types of catalyst for biodiesel production have been
summarized. It is concluded that the microwave-assisted technique improves
the reaction rate significantly in comparison with conventional methods.
Therefore it can be a suitable method of reducing the reaction time and can also
decreases the cost of biodiesel production.
