InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer for Biodiesel Blend Measurements

by Wilks - A Spectro Scientific Company  (Apr. 17, 2015)

Synopsis: Simple, yet powerful, filter-based IR spectrometers are ideal for compliance to the new ASTM 7861 test method for accurately measuring biodiesel blend ratios. The Wilks InfraSpec analyzer was the instrument used to develop and validate this method and thus is the industry standard for field measurement of FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) ...

Water-saving analysis on an effective water reuse system in biodiesel feedstock production based on Chlorella zofingiensis fed-batch cultivation

by IWA Publishing  (May 18, 2015)

The micralgae-based biofuel obtained from dairy wastewater (DWW) is considered a promising source of energy. However, this process consumes water due to the concentration of wastewater being normally too high for some micoralgae cultivation, and dilution is always needed. In this work, the cultivation of microalgae has been examined in ...

Biodiesel from wastewater: lipid production in high rate algal pond receiving disinfected effluent

by IWA Publishing  (Apr. 27, 2015)

The production of different species of microalgae in consortium with other micro-organisms from wastewaters may represent an alternative process, to reduce the costs, for obtaining biofuels. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of pre-ultraviolet disinfection (UV) in the production of lipids from biomass produced in high rate ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
