Abstract1. INTRODUCTION: Biodiesel is an environmental-friendly alternative of petroleum diesel. Biomasses, such as soy bean, rape seed, sunflower, palm oil, are usually the sources of biodiesel [1]. It is believed that biodiesel is a carbon-neutral solution, since the combustion of biodiesel generates the same amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) as those which have been absorbed by plants [2]. Petroleum diesel, produced from fossil fuel that stocks carbon for millions of years, is generally not recyclable. In Hong Kong, biodiesel is made from a multi-feedstock that includes waste cooling oil, grease waste, palm fatty acid and animal fat. About 100,000 tons of low carbon fuel is manufactured in the biodiesel factory and this can lead to 3.6% of GHG reduction in Hong ...
