The objective of this study was to investigate effect of reaction temperature, catalyst weight percentage and composition of Al2O3/SiO2 on conversion of FFA obtained from waste cooking oil (WCO) to take place esterification reaction by using Box-Behnken design. Statistical analysis demonstrates that catalyst weight percentage and temperature were insignificant statistically. Alumina composition was found as significant parameter at certain conditions by considering statistical analysis. It was seen that conversion of Free Fatty Acid (FFA) increases as composition of Al2O3 in Alumina/Silica catalyst increases. %80 Al2O3/20% SiO2 catalyst was found as promising catalyst since conversion of FFA with the catalyst was 32% at 80°C and 15:1 alcohol to FFA ratio. Besides, it was found that alcohol to FFA ratio affected the conversion reversely. When alcohol to FFA ratio was reduced to 2:1, conversion of FFA increased to 41%. The prepared catalysts were characterized by XRD and TPD analysis. Activity of catalysts were attributed to acidic strength and Bronsted acid sites on the aluminum sulfate in the catalysts. After screening effects of catalysts and reaction conditions, optimum levels of parameters were used to investigate the esterification reaction of model WCO. This reveals that conversion of FFA was found as 11% at 80°C and 15:1 alcohol to FFA ratio. Finally, the proposed catalyst does not have catalytic activity of hydrolysis reaction of oil at applied conditions.
