Hello, my name is Bekir Buyukkocabas, and I am a ninth grade student at Nil Academy. I am an awfully determined person, as I fancy to immerse myself in an atmosphere that coerces me to both learn and enjoy any particular given activity. Over the course of my intermediate school career, I have fabricated a stupendous academic profile that I wish to augment by means of competitions and comprehensive learning courses. In fact, in a two-year time span, I was able to garner, and contently procure, over eight science fair competition medals, four of which are gold! During my free time, I enjoy to voraciously read science-fiction novels, solve excruciating mathematics problems, listen to classical music, and investigate mysterious scientific phenomena. Furthermore, I love badminton and soccer, but with badminton being my most favoured. I also have a great passion for pencils, for I collect prestigious pencils from all over the world. For the future, I plan on becoming a theoretical chemist whose primary interests are in the fields of mathematical and physical chemistry. I am an ardent and fervent fellow that hopes to attend, in the future, one of my favourite academic institutions—Waterloo University.

Abstract:Within our deteriorating petroleum-based economy, the development of green fuels has given rise to many predicaments regarding the usage of food for fuel . In this project, an original approach to biodiesel production from waste tea leaves through the Soxhlet extractor was demonstrated. The biodiiesel was then subjected to characterization, chemical, and statistical tests. Overall, I discovered that tea biodiesel can become a future fuel.
