Abstract

The production of biodiesel from extracted rubber seed oil by using alumina
supported on calcium oxide as catalyst was conducted via transesterification reaction.
The effect of loading amount of Al2O3/CaO as catalyst upon the percentage yield of
fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) was investigated. The result showed that the
optimum condition for the reaction are 9:I methanol to oil ratio, 3 hours reaction
time at 65°C by using 2.0 g of catalyst produced 63% of FAMB. The compositions
of FAMB present in rubber seed oil are palmitic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid and
linolenic acid. Characterization of catalyst of conducted by using Fourier Transform
Infrared (FTIR) and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM). The
significant band for calcium oxide is 875.89 cm-l band the significant band for Ah03
is 588.14cm-l
. The surface morphology of the catalyst after calcinations process at
718°C is well agglomerated. Therefore, alumina supported on calcium oxide as
catalyst in biodiesel production via tranesterification is successful.
