Continuously growing environmental issues have becomea significant problem in the world. These ecological issues deteriorate our day to day life and are responsible for serious diseases. Also, the growing industrialization of the world has steeply risen and demanding petroleum products for their modernization. Economic development has also resulted in a considerable rise in energy demand. Biodiesel, a less polluting and sustainable fuel replacing diesel, has been gaining significant attention from researchers from all over the world. The utilization of vegetable oil and waste oil as fuel is found to be less polluting than the petrochemical products. The fundamental problem in biodiesel production is that it is more susceptible to oxidation, which results in increased viscosity of biodiesel concerning time, which in turn creates the problem. Therefore this review paper is focused onthe current fossil fuel scenarioconcerningwith respect toWorld and Indiaalong withthe properties of biodiesel resources andits production processes.

Keywords: Biodiesel, biomass, petrochemical products, production processes, purifications, sustainable fuel replacing diesel.
