CHAPTER 3

Intensification Process in Biodiesel Production

The breadth of biodiesel production technologies has exploded along with the expansive growth of the industry in the past several years. The biodiesel process continues to evolve as producers and researchers determine ways to refine production techniques. Occasionally, drastic design changes provide a new way of thinking about the transesterification process. As the process evolves there are opportunities for inventive technology. In the transesterification of vegetable oils, reaction rate can be limited by mass transfer between oil and alcohol because of the very poor mutual miscibility. Hence, some process intensification technologies have been developed and applied to improve mixing ...
