The paper explores the effect of the quantity of methanol on biodiesel production and its characteristics from Waste Frying Oil (WFO). Based on the results, it progresses to develop a continuous process simulation that can be scaled-up for commercial applications. Pretreatment of WFO was carried out by acid-esterification, followed by base-catalyzed transesterification. Optimum molar ratio of methanol: oil was found to be 6:1 experimentally which was then used in Aspen HYSYS to develop a continuous process flowchart. The properties of the product from both approaches were found to be comparable and satisfactorily compatible with the ASTM standards for biodiesel fuel.
