Biodiesel, a renewable fuel, has great potential in fulfilling an ever-increasing transport fuel demand. The conventional alkaline process for biodiesel production is energy-consuming and generates undesirable by-products. Lipases, due to their catalytic efficiency and specificity, have emerged as a great tool for converting a wide range of feedstock oils to biodiesel. Through enzymatic catalysis, applying lipases (in both free and immobilized form), is viable ...
