10.1 INTRODUCTION

As a result of concerning food vs. fuel debates, current biofuel development has focused on non-edible feedstock sources. Presently, a large number of non-edible vegetable oils are available, which do not compete with the food industry, so they can provide a source for bio-jet fuel production. In general, non-edible vegetable oil sources are classified into three categories: non-edible plant oils (e.g. Camelina sativa, Jatropha curcas, Nicotiana tabacum and tamanu), recycled oils derived from edible oilseed processing waste, and waste cooking oils. ...
