Biodiesel is a biofuel that belongs to the first generation biofuels. The feedstocks of biodiesel are pure vegetable oil, animal oil, animal fats and waste oil. Biodiesel is obtained from the animal and vegetable oil by a conversion process called transesterification. In order to perform an optimized transesterification process and to meet the requirements of the regulations many contaminants have to be removed like plastics, gums and Free fatty acid (FFA). As separation step filtration can be used to remove a lot of these impurities. Filtration can be used in several steps during the biodiesel production process. The use of filtration depends on the used feedstock. The use of filtration during biodiesel production can be divided in two steps the pre-treatment of the crude oil and the purifying of the crude biodiesel.
