Producing quality biodiesel with favourable environmental implications is of great importance in order to achieve sustainable energy management. This research is focused on the impact analysis of emissions from biodiesel produced through alkaline catalysed transesterification of waste groundnut oil (WGO), waste soyabean oil (W$0) and crudepalm kernel oil {CPKO). using SIMA PRO 7 .33. In this research, the comparative analysis of the emissions from 1 kg biodiesel produced was carried out. Waste groundnut oil biodiesel emissions had the most pronounced impact on human health : Waste groundnut oil biodiesel had 2.94 x 10"10 kg emissions, waste soyabean oil biodiesel released 2.40 x 1 0"10 kg non-environmentally friendly substances, while crudepalm kernel oil biodiesel had 1.85 x 10"10 kg emissions. On damage to ecosystem quality, emissions from waste groundnut oil biodiesel biodiesel was 1.25 x 10·3 kg, 9.95 x 10·• kg emissions from waste soyabean oil biodiesel and 4.39 x 10·• kg emissions f rom crudepalm kernel oil biodiesel. The result of damage to climate change show ed that waste soyabean oil biodiesel contributed the most wit h 1 .54 x 1 o·• kg C0 2 , followed by waste groundnvt oil biodiesel with 1.3 2 x 10"6 kg C02 and crudepalm kernel oil biodiesel with 1.18 x 10-• kg C0 2 • Single score result showed that the increasing order of damage on the 3 categories considered is human health, climate change and then ecosystem quality.
