Biodiesel derived from the neem oil has been proved as an alternative fuel sources. Since neem is most common edibl e and medicinal plant could be grown at any places in India, it was selected for the biodiesel purpose. Selected grades of neem seeds are collected and they are dried for some time. Dried seeds are crushed and the oil was extracted in the oil mill. Collect ed oil was tested to know their various properties. Since it was found to be more suitable for biodiesel then it was trans - esterified as the acid value was not suitable for the single stage trans - esterification. Hence two stage trans - esterification was don e. First stage to reduce the acid value and second stage was a usual methanolysis process. Trans - esterified biodiesel was tested for the various other biodiesel properties. Neem oil biodiesel will be the prominent source for alternate fuel in the future.
