A novel solid acid catalyst, which was prepared from sodium alginate and aluminum chlorides and characterized by SEM-EDS, XRD and FT-IR spectrometry. The catalyst was used for the synthesis of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) via (trans)esterification reaction using electrolysis process. Purity and FAME components of biodiesel were measured by GC-MS. The results showed that the aluminum-alginate prepared in a cheap and easy way exhibited high catalytic activity. FAME conversion from used-cooking oil was obtained by 93.82% in the presence of 10 wt.% of catalyst dosage upon refluxing for 4 h of methanol and oil in a molar ratio of 6:1.
