Abstract
A continuous process flowsheet for biodiesel production from rape seed oil under alkaline condition on a commercial scale was developed. Detailed operating conditions and equipment designs for the process were obtained. A technology assessment of the process was carried out to evaluate the technical benefits. Analysis showed that the alkali-catalyzed process using rape seed oil as the raw material required the fewest and smallest process equipment.
