This purpose of this project is to find a suitable method for conversion of bio oil to biodiesel through adsorptive distillation approach. This is to satisfy the need in finding latest technological advancements of the production of biodiesel. The problem needed to be assessed is whether the approach of adsorptive distillation is feasible for the conversion of bio oil to biodiesel. There have been many efforts to produce biodiesel in many methods as this fuel can be used in standard diesel engines Most methods of converting biodiesel use transesterification process. The technology of converting bio oil to biodiesel using the adsorptive distillation approach is still new and is rarely used as a conversion process. The method for conversion uses the rotary evaporator. The bio oil will be reacted with an alcohol, in this case propanol. Sulphuric acid will be used as a catalyst in the reaction. At the same time, water will be adsorbed by the molecular sieves to force the reaction to the right side. In conclusion, it is hoped that this project can prove that this method is feasible in converting bio oil to biodiesel and can be used in the future for the production of biodiesel.
