Cardiff University researchers boost biodiesel yields from processing waste

In the UK, researchers at Cardiff University have devised a way of increasing the yield of biodiesel by using the waste left over from its production processUsing simple catalysis, the researchers have been able to recycle a non-desired by-product produced when biodiesel is formed from vegetable oil, and convert this into an ingredient to produce even more biodiesel.

It is believed this new process will have significant environmental benefits by improving the yield of biodiesel in a sustainable way that doesn’t require the use of additional fossil fuels, and could potentially reduce the costs of the biodiesel production process. The results have been published September 14 in the journal Nature Chemistry.
