The selected method of catalyst preparation is shown, biodiesel was produced from both co-precipitation method and wet impregnation and fuel quality was accessed. Here, these two methods were initially tried and accessed for the best method to use and optimise.

Catalyst raw materials and the synthesis bifunctional catalyst were characterised using BET, XRD, FTIR, as illustrated in the spreadsheets namely CaO, Al2O3, and 75CaO/25Al2O3 characterisation.

Biodiesel Feedstocks were analysed through Gas Chromatography, the saturated and unsaturated fatty acids of fresh and waste sunflower and palm oils are shown in spreadsheet named fatty acids characterisations.

In the properties characterisations spreadsheet, the fuel properties of the produced sunflower and palm biodiesel is evident. Here, Viscosity, Density, Total acid number, Flash point, Oxidation stability, Soot, Sulphates, Nitrates, and glycol is shown.

Elemental content present within each biodiesel is shown in spreadsheet named Elemental Analysis _ICP_OES. Here, Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Aluminium, Zinc, Copper and Sulphur is shown in mg/l
