Today, an attempt is made to find alternative, nonrenewable energy sources to replace conventional fossil fuels. Currently national energy demands are exponentially increasing as we are progressing into digital age and the population is increasing. One such method that is currently being refined is using a vegetable oil found in agricultural crops as base for developing fuel. Bio-diesel fuel was first conceptualized by the inventor of the diesel engine, Dr Rudolf Diesel in 1895. He has peanut oil as a fuel while demonstrating a diesel engine at the Paris world exhibition. He speculated that usage of vegetable oils as a fuel source would in time become as important as oil and coal tar that was used extensively in his day.
