Food enterprise called chips based on materials such as banana, cassava and sweet potatoes are most popular among the Malay community. This material will be processed by slicing in small pieces and then fried with cooking oil. The commencement survey shows that Small Medium Entrepreneurs Industry (SMEI) in Batu Pahat, Johore (Malaysia) tossed away the saturated cooking oil since that it was not use anymore. Researcher concluded that this phenomenon can be beneficial by creating a machine which use to convert the cooking oil to bio-diesel yet can be rused as stove and boiler fuel. The innovation of bio-diesel machine is used to develop understanding for student in the area of Industrial Design such as the basic concept, research methodology, design application and to create a product based on Problem Based Learning (PBL). The design of Bio-45D machine was applying combination on the ADDIE and SDLC Model. The processes involved were pre-heating, mixing of Methanol and caustic soda (Natrium Hidroxyde) at controlled temperature. precipitating of glycerin and the deportation of 6%-8% of glycerin silt which producted the bottom of main reactor. In turn, Bio-45D Machine can produce more than 90% bio-diesel, avoid waste by recycling the used cooking oil to bio-diesel, also it can save the cost even in mass production. The design is a combination of knowledge and skills are also relevant to the other sector, such as agriculture and food industries. Furthermore, this Bio-45D machine has been contested at the international level. The best achievement was a Gold Medal, The Best Award in Malaysia Technology Expo 2009 and The World Exhibition On Innovation Research and New Technologies 2009 (Brussels Innova ‘09)
