Abstract

Biodiesel is produced by the transesterification of triglycerides with an alcohol in the presence of a homogeneous or heterogeneous catalyst. The reaction results in the production of ester group called biodiesel and glycerol as a byproduct. In this research project, study the feasibility of heterogeneous catalysts prepared from chicken bone. Using the calcination method to convert dried chicken bone into active catalyst at different temperature: 800˚C, 900˚C and 1000˚C. Catalyst characterized by various methods: X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis. Lastly, gas chromatographic instrument used to investigate the catalitic performance in the reaction.
