Abstract

The initial survey was done at Arba Minch, Ethiopia. It is found that there are many cafeterias and restaurants around Arba Minch are using a considerable amount of vegetable oils for preparing varieties of food and snacks. After deep-frying of foods they are disposing the used cooking oil (UCO) down the sink and also discharged into the water bodies and become the cause of water living organisms. It is estimated that approximately around 430 liters of Used cooking oil (UCO) arise from catering annually in each cafeteria of Arba Minch town. In this concern, the raw UCO use to obtain more than 79% as bio feedstock for the production of biodiesel at the end of the process. An even enormous amount of collectible household cooking oil waste is also likely available. Hence, this research was focused on making a profit of community in addition to save the environment from the used cooking oil. The appropriateness of used cooking oil has been set up in this research. In this study, used cooking oil has been collected, purified, transesterified and properties of transestefied used cooking oil biodiesel (TUCO) were studied and it is evident that the properties obtained were nearer to the conventional existing diesel. The performance characteristics of a single-cylinder, four-stroke, direct injection diesel
