GHG balance of biodiesel production and consumption in EU

by Inderscience Publishers  (Feb. 25, 2015)

The promotion of biofuels as energy for transportation in the industrialised countries is mainly driven by the perspective of oil depletion, concerns about energy security and global warming. Nevertheless, the production of biofuels entails emissions to the environment coming from the different stages in the product life cycle. This paper ...

The impact of biodiesel policy over raw material acquisition: a study about Brazilian Biodiesel National Programme

by Inderscience Publishers  (Feb. 25, 2015)

The aim of this article is to highlight and discuss the impacts of National Programme for Production and Use of Biodiesel - PNPB. This programme has some unique characteristics such as the incentive to social inclusion and local development by family farmers inclusion as oilseeds suppliers of biodiesel production, in this sense this study focus on ...

Renewable power offers immediate economic power solutions for Africa

by Clean Energy Pipeline  (Mar. 16, 2015)

Much has changed over the last ten years or so since the renewable power boom began. At the start of the boom, renewable power costs were very expensive and high quality developers were hard to find. Many of the European renewable incentive programs, which have been much maligned, are now paying dividends beyond the European continent. Good core ...

Studies on behaviour of a DI diesel engine fuelled with bio oil biodiesel emulsions

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jan. 20, 2015)

This paper discusses the results on the use of Jatropha methyl ester (JME) - Wood pyrolysis oil (WPO) emulsion as an alternative fuel in a compression ignition (CI) engine. Three different emulsions were prepared by adding WPO in 5%, 10% and 15% by volume with JME 95%, 90% and 85% by volume respectively using a surfactant Span 20 at 4% on volume ...

Moringa has attracted attention as pressure mounts to find sustainable alternative fuels to help meet countries' renewable energy targets and cut greenhouse gas emissions, without interfering with agricultural production. Researchers at BBA  has honor to establish this untapped resource as alternative source for Bio- Diesel industry of future ...

Graphical exergy analysis of reactive distillation column for biodiesel production

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 30, 2014)

This paper brings the novelty of the exergy analysis technique using Ex–N–A diagram to a packed reactive distillation (RD) column for biodiesel production. In this study, biodiesel is produced through the esterification of fatty acid with methanol. The simulation of the column was performed based on the non–equilibrium (NEQ) model of a three–phase ...

Calophyllum inophyllum and its common English label is Alexandrian laurel is a coastal tree with a grey or black bark. It grows 12 to 14 metres high, has thick, dark leaves, each with a prominent mid-rib and parallel veins.. Its clustered flowers, blooming in winter, are white and fragrant. The fruit is spherical with a smooth, greenish-yellow ...

Assessment of fuel efficiency of neem biodiesel (Azadirachta indica) in a single cylinder diesel engine

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 31, 2014)

Increase of petroleum diesel usage and its environmental pollution necessitate the study of alternate fuel production. Vegetable oils are the viable alternate form of non–polluted, renewable fuel to diesel engines. In this work, the non–edible oil, neem (Azadirachta indica) was used to produce biodiesel by a two step transesterification process. ...

Performance and emission characteristics of CI engine, fuelled with diesel and oxygenated fuel blends

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 6, 2015)

Vegetable oils are a potential alternative towards partial or total substitution of diesel fuels. In this study, we used ethanol as the solvent, and a bio fuel enhancer as additive to explore the possible use of higher percentages of biodiesel in an unmodified diesel engine. Biodiesel was produced from cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL) by pyrolysis ...
