Energy demand is increasing due to every increasing number of vehicles on the road by every day. Alternative fuels should be easily available, environment-friendly and techno-economically competitive. One of such fuels is triglycerides (vegetable oils/animal fats) and their derivatives. Since India is not self-sufficient in edible oil production, some non-edible oil seeds available in the country are required to be tapped for biodiesel production. With the abundance of forest and plant based non-edible oils being available in our country. Many researchers had carried out an investigation on biodiesel with Rice bran oil, Pongamia (Karanja), Jatropha curcas (Jatropha), Madhuca longifolia (Mahua Seed), Shorearobusta (Sal), Azadirachtaindica A. Juss (Neem) and Heveabrasiliensis (Rubber), etc. The aim of the paper is to review a performance and emission analysis of different vegetable oils as a biodiesel. In this paper, the comparative study of different biodiesel according to their cost carried out.
