- In this study, the synthesis of biodiesel fuel in supercritical methanol was investigated. As
reaction temperature, reaction pressure and molar ratio of methanol to oil increased, the
content of FAMEs increased. When the reaction temperature exceeded 350oC, the content of
FAMEs decreased due to thermal decomposition. The decrease of FAMEs was more severe
when the degree of unsaturation of vegetable oil was higher. From kinetic study and economic
potential analysis, it was concluded that supercritical methanol process is more economical
than conventional process because of simple separation process. Moreover, using
heterogeneous catalysts could achieve milder reaction conditions without losing advantages of
supercritical methanol process.
