Using our BIODIESEL CALCULATOR will give you a very close to ideal estimation for a recipe to produce biodiesel on a small scale level. We assume that you use fresh vegetable oil or used cooking oil from a fryer with an content of Free Fatty Acids of no more than 3.5 to 4.0 %. We recommend that you use a two step transesterification with a seperation of the glycerin after each step. The Free Fatty Acid should be messured according to DIN 10 264, the Peroxid Number according to § 35 LMBG 13.00. The quality of this reduced process will not meet currant biodiesel standards.
