Abstract

Enzymatic biodiesel production shows a very high potential to be an eco-friendly process compared with traditional chemical processes, which could pose downstream processing problems. As an environmentally benign green approach, enzymatically catalyzed biodiesel production avoids the generation of wastewater and eases the recovery of high purity glycerol. This article discusses the benefits of using enzymatic approach. Both the opportunities and challenges are covered.
