One of the most important problems that faces the world in this time which has drawback on life economically and environmentally, is increasing in fuel consumption significantly. Therefore, there are many researches and studies are widely listed as they seek to find an alternative to petroleum fuel. The most important alternative is biodiesel, which is produced by converting vegetable oils or animal fats into fuel and can be used either in cars, factories or even in the production of energy. Biodiesel has become an important alternative since it can be extracted from renewable and low-cost resources. However, a major obstacle is marketing biodiesel. The main objective of our project is to make a machine that produces biodiesel by converting used cooking oil to biodiesel as it will cost much less than the cost of fuel as we will use less expensive raw materials as they contain fatty acids. In addition, one of the most important objectives is to verify the characteristics of biodiesel and make sure that its appropriate for cars usage, so tests must be applied to approach this goal.
