BIODIESEL PRODUCTION PROCESS STARTING FROM ALOE VERA

Marcelo Da Silva, André E. Machado, Ana Carolina R. De Castro, Bruno Carvalho

Abstract


The concern with the impact in the activities that require the use of non-renewable fuels and the increase on the demand for clean energy have made biofuels research become more notorious, thus began the search for oilseed plants that are the base for biodiesel derived from plant. To that end, priority has been given to the study of aloe vera, a plant originally found in arid or tropical regions. The raw material necessary in order to produce this biodiesel in obtained by extracting a colorless and viscous gel coming from the leaf of the aloe vera, which adapted to the transesterification process like other oils regularly used to produce biodiesel, making this work simple and feasible.
