Abstract: Present study is focused to improve biodiesel from Cedar Wood Oil (CWO) and appraise its effect on the engine performance and emission. Cedarwood is found to be appropriate for biodiesel production on a large scale. CWO extraction was done by combination of expeller and solvent extraction method. Transesterification method was carried out by addition NaOH and methanol to form fatty acid methyl ester of cedarwood oil. Further, experimental investigation was conducted in a single cylinder naturally aspirated direct injection compression ignition engine coupled with eddy current dynamometer. Engine was improved for better performance and reduced emissions.
