In this work, TPA was supported on H-Y, H-b and HZSM-5 zeolite. A 55% TPA/H-beta produces the highest catalytic activity in tranesterification of Green seed canola (GSC) oil and etherification of glycerol. The properties of the  biofuel (GSC biodiesel + glycerol ether) properties are better to those reported with ASTM standards.
