This study was performed to produce biodiesel from vegetable oils and animal fats in waste water of Park Hyatt Saigon hotel. The survey was performed to determine the optimum reaction condition for converting waste grease into biodiesel. The reaction was conducted at 60, 90 and 120 minutes; the catalyst dosage (NaOH) of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 g; ratio of 4:1, 5:1, 6:1, 7:1 MeOH : grease. The reaction temperature was 600C. The optimal reaction conditions were found to be 90 minutes, catalyst dosage of 4 g, ratio of 5:1 MeOH : grease. The efficient conversion achieved 80% biodiesel and 20% crude glycerin.
