    Introduction: Waste frying oils transesterification was studied for the purpose of achieving the best conditions for biodiesel production. Biodiesel is proved to be the best replacement for diesel because of its unique properties such as significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, non-sulfur emissions, non-particulate matter pollutants, low toxicity, and biodegradability. Waste edible oil is an feedstock in the biodiesel production. The discussion will cover various aspects from oil composition, oil yielding, economics, cultivation materials, land availability, and also the resources availability. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire has been conducted among 100 students from Saveetha Dental College on awareness on the production of biodiesel from household waste. Results: Most of the waste accumulated in India is found to be form household wastes. 80% of the participants do not know about the zero waste system. There are 45% of the participants who are aware of glass Büchner system. In the present generation, more than 95% of the world biodiesel is produced from the edible oil which is easily available in many large-scale industries from the agriculture land. Conclusion: Production of biodiesel from waste cooking oils for diesel substitute is particularly important because of the decreasing trend of economical oil reserves, environmental problems caused due to fossil fuel use, and the high price of petroleum products in the international market. An awareness on the production of biodiesel from household waste was created.
