Abstract This study takes previous work on separative reactors for biodiesel production to a new level by proposing a novel technology based on reactive absorption. This is a significant step forward as reactive absorption offers important advantages in addition to typical benefits of reactive distillation: reduced capital investment and operating costs due to the absence of the reboiler and condenser, and lower temperature profile in the column to avoid thermal degradation of the products. Computer aided process engineering tools such as AspenTech Aspen Plus are used for the process design and simulation of a plant producing 10 ktpy biodiesel from waste oil with high free fatty acids content.
