The demand of energy around the Worldwide has been dramatic. Moreover, fossil fuel emits huge quantities of toxic gases that contribute in global worming phenomenon. Thus, many countries are seeking to adopted bio fuel as alternative of traditional petroleum fuels. The using of biodiesel fuel may contribute in minimizing global warming phenomenon. Moreover, it posses several advantages over petroleum diesels for example, non-toxic and readily biodegradable. Furthermore. It has been observed that the castor oil plan grows wild in Koya region in Iraqi Kurdistan. Indeed, castor oil may consider a quite reliable source to produce biodiesel. Indeed, it can produce in huge quantities in Iraqi Kurdistan region. Thus, this work aims to produce biodiesel from castor oil by using transesterification reaction. Moreover, this work has also adopted process optimization to find out the optimum operating conditions for the process for example, methanol to oil ratio. Furthermore, several tests have been applied on the produced fuel on specific gravity and flash point.
