Abstract:
    The renewable biodiesel fuel can be produced from used cooking oil with the aid of cost effective wasted animal bones catalyst that would carry out vital transesterification step to produce biodiesel
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    biodiesel yields 93% of energy. 240 million litres of waste produce per year in Pakistan can give 150 million litres of biodiesel per year. Rather being imported, Pakistan can produce it resulting into enhancement of economical growth and fulfilling the energy requirement.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Pakistan state oil, Pakistan petroleum limited, Nouveau Energy Management Services (NEMS), BioTech Energy (BTE).
How will the solution works
    1. Transesterification of waste cooking oil with methanol 2. Hydroxyapetite produced from calcined wasted animal bones as catalyst react to form methyloleate (biodiesel) and glycerol as a by product.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Pakistan state oil that is making the biodiesel from jatropha demands the larger area of land to grow, water availability and richer soil restricts the biodiesel synthesis.This method aims towards using the waste as source and bones to provide catalyst of large surface area that gives higher yield.
