For biodiesel of 1st generation new acid – base La2O3/ ZrO2 catalysts are developed for simultaneous esterification and transesterification of unpurified fats  For biodiesel of 2nd generation Pd doped silica-alumina are studied for conversion of free fatty acids to produce in a single step fuel similar to conventional diesel.
