When methanol is used in alcoholysis, the reaction is called methanolysis, in which fatty
acid methyl ester and glycerol are generated . Fatty acid methyl esters can be
used as an alternative fuel for diesel engine (biodiesel). Biodiesel is a substitute or extender
for traditional petroleum diesel. It can be used in conventional diesel engines, and the use
of biodiesel is advantageous for reducing emission of CO2, CO, SO2 and particle materials.
Biodiesel is now spreading world wide. For example, in France, all the diesel fuel marketed
contains 5% of biodiesel.
