Public policies, current events; scientific and engineering advancements are dependent on economics, management, and legislations; apparently, they are closely intertwined. Legislative efforts can make technological advancement more economical while the industry develops (i.e. temporary biodiesel road tax exemption). Alternative fuels and energy sources are an issue of increasing importanc; not only among the scientific and engineering community, but also in economics and global public policies. It can also demonstrate to engineers, technocrats and to entrepreneurs that chemical science is not independent of economics, and advancements in science can yield considerable benefit to the general public. This research covers the production of biodiesel from any kind of vegetable oil, animal fat or lipidic residues. It also addresses processing and comparison to petro-diesel issues associated with making biodiesel fuel, which is a clean, renewable fuel that can be made from various biomass, oil feedstocks such as waste vegetable oil, yellow grease, animal fats, and virgin vegetable oils.
