Abstract

•Optimum biodiesel yield of 95% was achieved by 50Ca–Ce mixed oxide catalyst.•Biodiesel yield increased with increasing basicity and BET surface area.•The catalyst can be reused 6 times without significant loss of catalytic activity.•Stability of 50Ca–Ce was enhanced by synergic effect between CaO and CeO2.•Deactivation of catalyst was mainly due to leaching of CaO and pores filling.
