What is Biodiesel ?

Biodiesel is a clean & green fuel derived from trans-esterification or acid esterification of vegetable oils or fats.
Its properties are very similar to diesel fuels.

Biodiesel is produced from which plants ?

In India, there is a vast potential for the production of biodiesel from Jatropha curcas (called Jangli arandi in Hindi and Kattukkotai in Tamil) and Pongamia pinnata (The Indian Beech called Karanj in Hindi and Pungai in Tamil) as they occur in plenty in forests and wastelands.
In the West, biodiesel is produced mostly from field crops like rapeseed and sun flower in Europe and soyabean in the US. While, Malaysia utilises palm oil while Nicaragua uses Jatropha curcas (The Physic Nut) for bio diesel production.
