Overall, it is recommended that based on the quality and properties of waste cooking oil due to frying of virgin oil, both physical and chemical treatment will be required. Physical treatment includes ﬁltration for removing suspended solids and repeated water washing for the separation of water-soluble salt impurities present in the waste cooking oil. Chemical pretreatment processes involve acidic esteriﬁcation, saponiﬁcation, adsorption, and distillation for the reduction of free fatty acid content. Transesteriﬁcation can be further classiﬁed as alkali-catalyzed, acid-alkaline-catalyzed (two stage), heterogeneous catalyst, noncatalyzed super critical methanol, or enzyme-catalyzed transesteriﬁcation processes.
