Exploring the biodiesel potentials of waste avocado fruit oil

The biodiesel potential of waste avocado fruit was investigated. This study is essential for utilizing the enormous waste generated from avocado cultivation in Nigeria. Biodiesel was produced using a two-step acid-base catalyzed transesterification process. The acid catalyzed esterification step was required to convert the free fatty acids present in the oil to methyl esters. Important biodiesel properties such as flash...
