The depletion of oil
resources as well as the environmental regulation has led to the development of
alternate energy sources. Biodiesel is a viable substitute for
petroleum-based diesel fuel. Its advantages are improved lubricity, higher
cetanenumber, cleaner emissions, reduced global warming. Neem as biodiesel has
potential as an alternative energy source. However, this oil alone will not
solve our dependence on foreign oil within any practical time frame. Use of
this with other alternative energy sources and suitable additives could
contribute to a more stable supply of energy. Biodiesel thus produced meets the
standard biodiesel specifications. The production and consumption of biodiesel
will inevitably rise in future due to low environmental impact, ease of
handling, and possibility of use without need for major adjustments of existing
engines of motor vehicles. Production and use of biodiesel leads to
· Saves foreign exchange.
· Improves energy security of the nation.
· Provides employment to rural masses.
· Produce sustainable and relatively inexpensive
· Start propagating the concept with village
population to supplement their income with the existing tree
