  • How is biodiesel produced?

    This article is the first in a series that will take a close look at alternative fuels production and source materials. Over the next several months, we will cover natural gas, propane, ethanol, hydrogen, and fuel cells. This month, we will focus on biodiesel. Methods for creating fuels from renewable biomass feedstocks have been used since the 1800s. Vegetable oils were used in diesel engines ...

  • Biodiesel dispersion replaces diesel fuel

    Is that possible to find substitution to traditional diesel fuel? Until recently these question were asked by ecologists and diesel cars owners who are taking hard time in periodic rises in price of fuel. With the event of the biodiesel development the situation cleared up. It became clear to all that cheap, qualitative and environmentally friendly biodiesel was born and started winning surely ...

  • Future of diesel engines with biodiesel economy

    Biofuel is a fuel from biological raw materials. Any animal or vegetable fat can become raw materials for production of the natural diesel practically. Biodiesel economy is really changed after technology was allowed to make fuel from algas, commercial crops, animal fats and even the fulfilled culinary oils can become the most widespread source of fats. This fuel is safe in production and use, it ...

  • Safe environment using biodiesel blend

    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 quickly decays therefore doesn’t threaten ...

  • Making biodiesel blends fuel is simple

    Biodiesel is made in the process of transesterification of vegetable oil by methanol, although sometimes ethanol or isopropyl alcohol are used instead. The ration is approximately 200 kg of methanol per 1 ton of oil (plus potassium or sodium hydroxide). Process temperature is approximately 60°С, no pressure increase is required. After the transesterification reaction, the content of ...

  • Value stream mapping based on energy and cost system for biodiesel production

    Organisations have to give more attention to customer demands for survival and also for increasing their market shares. But customers' demands are not stable. The main problem of all organisations is how to cut costs during production process. The solution to this problem is built up with lean–based production systems. Value stream mapping identifies those areas where unwanted productivity is ...

  • Landfill gas, canola and biodiesel: working towards a sustainable system

    Snohomish County in western Washington State began converting its vehicle fleet to a blend of biodiesel in 2005. As prices for biodiesel rose due to increased demand for this cleaner-burning fuel, Snohomish County looked to its farmers to “grow” this fuel locally. Suitable oil seed crops for biodiesel feedstock include canola, mustard and camelina. The residue, or meal, has high value ...

  • InfraSpec VFA-IR Spectrometer for Biodiesel Blend Measurements

    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) blend percentages. ...

  • Biodiesel Analysis with Mid Infrared - From Feedstock to Fuel

    Introduction The biofuels industry is growing rapidly and so is the need for analysis to ensure quality product. The parameters for quality biodiesel require different types of instruments and measurement systems, such as gas chromatographs (GC), titrators, centrifuges, infrared spectrometers... Although claims are out there for the analyzer that will do it all, unfortunately there is no one ...
