It is converted to fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) by a transesterification process involving the chemical reaction with an alcohol such as methanol in the presence of a strong alkali or acid as the catalyst. The FAME product is separated from the glycerol. bioelement An element that is essential in the molecules of all living organisms. The three main elements are oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. Sulphur and phosphorus are dominant is most organisms, and calcium in humans. Other elements in lesser amounts include sodium, potassium, magnesium, and copper.

Bond number A dimensionless number, Bo, used to characterize the shape of drops of liquid and relates the interactions of gravitational and surface tension forces, σ, in a capillary of diameter d: Bo = ( ρ − ρ ') gd 2 σ where ρ is the density of the droplet and ρ' is the density of the surrounding fluid. It is also known as the Eötvös number (Eo) and named after Hungarian physicist Loránd Eötvös (1848–1919). Bond’s Work Index A semi-empirical equation that relates the power consumption required for crushing and grinding solid particles such as rocks and ores into smaller particles.
