Shortage in hydrocarbon fuel sources, energy preservation and future stringent emission regulations have been a formidable challenge to the most prominent Small and Medium Enterprise (SME ) in Malaysia especially in the burner system of boiler. Therefore, the alternative source of fuel is receiving a lot of attention especially in the application of renewable energy such as biodiesel fuel (BDF) and low quality fuel. The application of biodiesel in the burner system offer not only attractive and more economical fuel but also creates problems of higher toxic emission such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matters (PM). This review presents the current status of the several studies that had been carried out on the emission and performance characteristic of biodiesel burners burner in term of the specific fuel type that could be used, type of emissions such as NOx, CO, CO2 and others operating condition that can be used to optimize the performance of the biodiesel burner system and also comment the progress of it in some areas. Based on the review clearly indicated that this form of alternative fuel can be an attractive renewable alternative energy source for burner system
