The performance of treated kaolinite obtained from three types treatment that was calcination at 600 °C (K600), 800 °C (K800) and acid treated of K800 (KA800). All catalysts were tested for their catalytic activity via electrolysis process through (trans)esterification of soy bean oil at room temperature. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) was performed to characterize the microstructures and chemical properties of as-prepared treated kaolinite material. The effect of catalyst amount (2, 3 and 5 wt.%) was evaluated for the conversion of FAME from soybean oil and followed by GC-MS, determining of the purity of FAME at different operation variables. The result showed that for KA800 as catalyst, the FAME conversion was the highest as well as 18,85% at 3 wt.% catalyst of catalyst loading in the mixture, respectively.
