Several woks have already been done in production of biodiesel from edible oils. In developing countries like India where consumption and cost of edible oil is very high, the biodiesel production fro m edible oils does not seems to be economically feasible. But biodiesel production from non-edible oils is economically feasible due to less consumption and cost of non-edible oils. However a lot of work has also been done on non-edible oils such as Neem, Jatropha, Karanja, and Mahua not much work has been reported on biodiesel production from Karanja oil. Limited amount of work has been done on the optimization of biodiesel production and the evaluation of performance and emission characteristics of diesel engine fueled with karanja biodiesel. Keywords: Karanja. Jatropha, Mahua, Palm, Soybean, Performance.
