Biodiesel is well known for an eco-friendly alternative fuel for petrodiesel. But biodiesel has a disadvantage since it is derived from expensive food resource. In this study, we synthesized the biodiesel from duck's oil which was food trash via transesterification under base catalyst. After analytic result of density, kinematic viscosity, cold temperature characteristics, lubricity and cetane number which were main fuel characteristics, this duck's biodiesel has enough potential to use as fuel except only domestic winter season.
