Plant Seed Oils and Their Potential for Biofuel Production ...

2020-11-1  One of the key resolutions for mankind’s energy challenges is the development of biofuels. Biodiesel, or alkyl esters, is the fastest growing biofuel in the world and is considered a good replacement for petro-diesel. However, its full adoption is not yet economically viable due to the high cost of production of its primary feedstock, triglycerides derived from plant sources (oils).
