Emissions and performance of a stationary diesel engine run on biodiesel blends

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 17, 2011)

This paper presents an investigation into the effect of biodiesel blending on emissions and efficiency in a stationary diesel engine. Rapeseed based biodiesel blended in increments of 25% with fossil diesel. The emissions of CO2 show a decrease in emission (g/kWh) with increased engine load. Within the range of tests carried out, the NO ...

Putting the brakes on biodiesel

by Citizens League for Environmental Action Now (CLEAN)  (Nov. 1, 2006)

  Come December 31st, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is set to effectively ban biodiesel in the state’s largest markets.

Safe environment using biodiesel blend

by GlobeCore Blending  (Nov. 15, 2013)

The biodiesel blend is more environmentally friendly, than standard types of fuel which has a crude oil base. It only radiates the carbon dioxide necessary for growth of plants. It doesn’t contain sulfur and other unfriendly contaminates. It has better burning process, because there is more mass of oxygen and it is biological product which ...

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. ...
