GANDON-HERNANDEZ, José; TORRES-BARATUTE, Yanelis C.  y  GARCIA-DIAZ, Marilin. Characterization of the biofuel obtained from waste vegetable oil. RTQ [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.2, pp. 236-248. ISSN 2224-6185.

The transformation of the vegetable oils into biofuels has been come studying from the first third of the XX century, and in present time it is presented like an attractive solution for the problems of the reuse and the indiscriminate dumping of the residual vegetable oil of alimentary origin. These biofuels in a general way possesses similar physical properties that the Diesel fuel, nevertheless it is of great importance to characterize them casuistically, mainly as for their content of humidity, viscosity, density, acidity index, corrosion to the copper and presence of sludges. This work has as objective to characterize a biocombustible obtained from a residual oil of an alimentary industry. To obtain the biofuel all the steps they were continued and for the analysis of the physical properties mainly the norms of ASTM were used. The results obtained so much for the fuel, as well as for the mixtures B5 and B10 allow to assure that they can be used as Diesel fuel.

Palabras clave : biofuel; used vegetable oil; transesterification.
