Environmental Life cycle assessment of the process (LCA) was conducted using GREET and GaBi software tools to determine Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and evaluate the carbon footprint of the biodiesel production process. The technical, economic and environmental assessment results of this work were compared with conventional acid and base catalyzed transesterification processes to determine the economic and environmental sustainability of the supercritical biodiesel production process.
