Clean Fuel Production from Waste Date Pits

Synthesizing biodiesel from non-edible feedstocks that do not disturb the food chain is becoming an attractive source of biofuels. Due to excess availability of date pits in GCC countries date pit oil extract can be used as an alternative fuel. This study aimed at biodiesel synthesis from raw date pit oil. The fatty acid profile of the extracted oil showed potential to be transformed into a biodiesel replacement. The date pits oil contain 54.85% unsaturated fatty acids (UFA), whereas the level of saturated fatty acid (SFA) was 45.14 …
