Special Issue Information
The ever-increasing demand of energy and the harmful effects of burning fossil fuels have compelled researchers worldwide to look for alternative fuel resources. Biodiesel has emerged as a potential alternative to petroleum diesel for compression ignition engines. Especially in the last two decades, there has been a lot of progress and technological reforms in the field of biodiesel with regard to biodiesel production, its higher ester conversion, improved yield, etc. Biodiesel-fueled engines have been reported to be less efficient compared to diesel engines for various reasons. Hence, researchers across the world have been focusing on developing efficient engines at par with diesel engines in addition to meeting legislative emission norms. The recent progress has shown promising outcomes with respect to biodiesel production and efficient biodiesel engines.
This Special Issue is devised to have a platform to share the recent developments, challenges, as well as prospects of biofuel.
