One of the main tasks today in energy efficiency are full of energy recovery and development and the use of alternative energy sources. The problem with the quantities and prices of motor fuels and their ecology is the basis for much modern research. The Production and use of the biodiesel is increasingly necessary in the transport propulsion systems. In its production is very different waste products, such as the glycerol. It should not be disposed of, and look for ways to fulfill it. The purification certain levels are one approach to its preparation, as raw material in different technology productions. The increasing the amount of the spilthed glycerol in biodiesel production is focused towards the development of systems for purification and efficient technologies for its utilization.
