  • Putting the brakes on biodiesel

      Come December 31st, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is set to effectively ban biodiesel in the state’s largest markets. The problem, they say, lies with the fuel’s nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and their contribution to the formation of ground-level ozone in Texas’ eastern counties. According to the TCEQ, biodiesel does not meet the stricter NOx standards recently ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biodiesel Feedstock Analysis 2nd Generation of Biofuels

    The main obstacle in biodiesel production from waste fats and oils is their high free fatty acid content. Its precise measurement helps Professor Karel Kolomaznik’s Faculty of Applied Informatics team at Tomas Bata University in Zlín (Czech Republic) to develop suitable new technology. Biodiesel from waste The Tomas Bata University ...

  • Performance analysis of a single cylinder DI diesel engine using different biodiesel

    Biodiesel produced from cottonseed oil is quite a promising alternative fuel for diesel engines. Use of vegetable oils in diesel engines leads to slightly inferior performance and higher smoke emissions due to their high viscosity and carbon residue. But the performance of vegetable oils can be improved by modifying them through the transesterification process. The research work discusses the ...

  • Optimisation of injection timing and operating parameters on Jatropha biodiesel engine using RSM

    Injection timing, along with engine operating parameters, significantly affects the performance and emissions of Jatropha biodiesel engine. Optimal setting of these parameters is indispensable for efficient operation of diesel engine when fuelled with Jatropha biodiesel. The present work is to optimise these parameters using response surface methodology (RSM) for Jatropha biodiesel operation in ...

  • Comparison of EN 14078 and ASTM D7371 infrared biodiesel methods

    Infrared (IR) analysis is the most widely used measurement technology for measuring biodiesel in diesel. Both EN 14078 and ASTM D7371 methods use infrared as the analytical method and more specifically FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) spectroscopy. Infrared is a common spectroscopic technique used for quantitative and qualitative analysis. In the biodiesel measurement, the fatty acid methyl ...

  • Hielscher – Ultrasonic Transesterification of Oil to Biodiesel Improves Reaction Speed and Yield

     Ultrasonication can improve the conversion processing of vegetable oils or animal fats to biodiesel by improved mixing and enhanced chemical activity. The manufacturing of biodiesel from oils (e.g. soy, canola, sunflower seed) or animal fats, involves the base-catalyzed transesterification of fatty acids with methanol to give the corresponding methyl esters. The conventional esterification ...

  • Comparison of infrared biodiesel measurement methods - An overview of ASTM-approved methods and those under consideration

    There are several options for measuring the amount of biodie-sel in diesel fuel. Methods EN 14078 and AS'lTvI D7371 are more amenable to laboratory testing although wailing for an off-site laboratory to perform the test can take several hours to several days. For a driver whose truck has just been loaded for a delivery, any wail is too long. Other options for more simplified on-site testing that ...

  • Microalgae harvesting and cell disruption: a preliminary evaluation of the technology electroflotation by alternating current

    Some species of microalgae have high productivity and lipid content, which makes them good candidates for biodiesel production. Biomass separation and cell disruption are important steps in biodiesel production from microalgae. In this work, we explored the fundamentals of electroflotation by alternating current (EFAC) with non-consumable electrodes to simultaneously harvest microalgae and ...
