Abstract

As the world seeks sustainable alternatives to conventional fuels, biodiesel emerges as a promising renewable energy source. Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL), with a remarkable 30-40% lipid content and waste-reduction capabilities, represents an intriguing prospect for biodiesel production. Importantly, the cultivation of BSFL addresses the critical concern of balancing food production and fuel generation. This research investigates biodiesel synthesis from BSFL oil, utilizing two distinct base catalysts: NaOH and KOH. Biodiesel yields of 92.71% w/w and 90.97% w/w were achieved with KOH and NaOH, respectively. Furthermore, the resulting biodiesel complied with stringent calorific value and quality standards such as density, viscosity, FAME value, and carbon residue outlined in national regulations. These findings underscore the potential of BSFL as a sustainable and viable biodiesel source. Leveraging BSFL for biodiesel production not only contributes to cleaner energy but also addresses waste management challenges, propelling toward a greener and more sustainable future.
