The everlasting demand of diesel and petrol and continuous rise in prices has forces us to search for ecologically sustainable alternative energy source. Jatropha Curcas is identified as one of the most appropriate supply for biodiesel due to the seeds characteristic and advantages that it has. This study aims to shed light on selecting the material that can be used to make container for Jatropha Curcas oil. This study is an experimental study, which objective is to select a suitable material that can be used to create a container for Jatropha Cure as oil. The methodology used in determining the container is via experiments that investigates the effect of different containers on the oil in terms of chemical composition. The outcome of this study shows that the most suitable material to be used as container for Jatropha Curcas oil is thermostat plastic. However, other material did not cause any significant changes on the oil itself. Thus, the decision to select the material as the container is made solely based on the experiments done in this project.
