Abstract: Now days increases the demand of petroleum products because of increasing industrialization and uses of automobile. Due to this increases the rate of petroleum products. The fossil fuels quantity is limited on the earth. So it is necessary to find out an alternative fuel. There are many researchers are doing their research on alternative fuel and they are developed an alternative fuel i.e. Biodiesel. Biodiesel is produced from transesterification and esterification process. For production of biodiesel various raw materials are used such as Vegetable oils, Animal fats and Short chain alcohols. Also various crops are used for biodiesel production such as Jatropha, Undi, Castor, Karnja, Soya bean, Sunflower, Palm, Corn, Jojoba, Cotton, Moha etc. Biodiesel is prepared from renewable resources, so it having less emission than petroleum products.
