The biodiesel was obtained from used vegetable oil (UVO) and animal waste oil (AWO) by the two stages transesterification reaction. Also chemical and technical properties of feed and products were determined. Conditions of transesterification reaction for each of the oil samples were determined as a result of several sets of experiments. The suitable conditions of transesterification reaction were the following. Hereto a molar ratio of oil: methanol: catalyst was 1: 6: 1/40, for 30 min, at temperature of 600°C. To obtain biodiesel directly by the one stage transesterification, in case of using UVO sample, when the acidity number of feed oil had to less than 3 mg KOH/g. The biodiesel from UVO and AWO was prepared by mixing 5, 10, 20% of volume in the summer and winter diesel fuel. However, the product from mixture of UVO and winter diesel fuel met the technique requirements both of winter and summer diesel fuel, but the product from mixture of AWO and summer diesel fuel did not satisfy technical requirements of diesel fuel.
