Abstract :

In this study Ultrafiltration polyethersulphone spiral wound membrane module were used separately to refine crude biodiesel containing glycerol and unreacted oil. The membrane module were operated at permissible range of pressure . The permeate is collected and analyzed for composition and physical parameters such as density and kinematic viscosity, calorific value and flash point are investigated .The quality of biodiesel obtained through ultrafiltration membrane module is compatible with diesel and meet all requirements as compared to commercial grade biodiesel available in market.
