Abstract

The data employed the blend of waste used oil and beef tallow for the synthesis of fatty acid ethyl ester (FAEE) via ethanolysis of developed catalyst from calcined fermented cocoa pod husk powder (CFCPHP) doped with burnt cocoa pod husk powder (BCHP). Characterization of the developed doped catalyst (DDC) was carried out using FTIR, SEM, XRD, and BET adsorption analysis, while the basic strength of the DDC was tested through reusability test data. Mathemati- cal optimization of the process condition was carried out through Box-Behnken Experimental Design (BBED) in 29 runs with variations in four variables as catalyst concentration (1.5 to 3.5 wt.%), reaction time (60 to 100 min), ethanol/oil molar ratio (EtOH/OMR) of 3 to 7, and reaction temperature (60 to 80 °C). The FAEE quality was ascertained by determining its fuel properties.
