Biodiesel is an environmentally acceptable alternative fuel that has no negative health effects and may be used in vehicles to cut emissions when compared to regular oil. Biodiesel can be produced from the pyrolysis process of Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) using a fly ash catalyst. The purpose of this study was to obtain biodiesel with a low water content of hygroscopic nature. The pyrolysis process using fly ash catalyst occurs in a temperature range of 141-200 o C, which has an initial
