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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

by Allied Market Research  (Feb. 10, 2015)

According to a new report by Allied Market Research titled, "Global Second Generation Biofuels - Size, Industry Analysis, Trends, Opportunities, Growth and Forecast, 2013 - 2020", the global second generation biofuels (Advanced Biofuels) market would reach$23.9 billion by 2020, registering a ...

Combustion and emission characteristics of a diesel engine fuelled with biodiesel having varying palmitic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid in their fuel composition

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 24, 2014)

The present work discusses the performance and emission characteristics of blends of vegetable oil esters with varying saturated fatty acid composition tested on a stationary direct injection compression ignition engine. Saturated fatty acids are long-chain carboxylic acids that usually have between 8 and 24 carbon atoms and have no double bonds. ...

A Biodiesel Filled Future For Your Car - case study

by Green Fuels LTD  (Sep. 15, 2014)

Future vehicles require a level of robustness to the legislated future introduction of bio-diesel. This research aims to understand the future of biodiesels in world markets and the characteristics of these fuels. The Need In recognising that sustainable sources of biodiesel will be dependant upon the particular local circumstances where the raw ...

Exergetic cost analysis of a CI engine fuelled with petrodiesel and palm and karanja biodiesels: a comparative assessment

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 4, 2014)

This paper deals with evaluation of suitable fuel for a 4–stroke single–cylinder diesel engine operated at steady state amongst three fuels - petrodiesel (PD), palm biodiesel (PB) and karanja biodiesel (KB) - through exergy, economic and thermoeconomic analyses. Based on exegy analysis, PB is found to be the best fuel with highest exergetic ...
