  • 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 ...

  • Performance of a direct diesel engine using aviation fuels blended with biodiesel

    In this study, jet fuel (JF) and railroad fuel (D2) with SME blends (5%, 20%, 50%) were used in a four–cylinder, naturally aspirated, direct (DI) diesel engine. The engine was operated under full load and tested at various speeds to determine the engine's performance and exhaust emission characteristics. The experimental results show that as the SME ratio of the fuels increases, the break ...

  • 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 ...

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

    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 ...

  • Comparison of blends of conventional diesel fuel and CRBO containing high levels of FFA in a DI diesel engine

    This work attempts to analyse the ability of high free fatty acid (FFA) crude rice bran oil (CRBO) in replacing diesel partially in a compression ignition (CI) engine. It was observed that the delay period and the maximum rate of pressure rise for CRBO blends are lower than diesel and is almost inversely proportional to FFA content. Maximum heat release rate for CRBO blends are lower and occur ...

  • Exergy analysis of a diesel engine operated with koroch seed oil methyl ester and its diesel fuel blends

    This study focuses on exergy analysis of a single cylinder four stroke direct injection (DI) diesel engine using 10% (B10), 20% (B20), 30% (B30) and 40% (B40) blending of Koroch seed oil methyl ester (KSOME) with conventional diesel fuel. The analysis corresponds to steady state engine operations under variable load conditions. For each fuel operation at various loads, exergetic performance ...

  • Diesel economy is the benefit for the future

    Diesel fuel is a liquid product which is used as fuel in the diesel engine. It is received by oil distillation from kerosene and gas-oil fractions. It represents quite viscous and difficult evaporated combustible liquid. Generally it consists of carbons, some percentage of hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur and nitrogen. Such type of fuels is intended for high-speed diesel and gas-turbine engines of land ...

  • A Biodiesel Filled Future For Your Car - case study

    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 naterial is sourced, the ...

  • 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. ...

  • EU fuel quality monitoring — 2014

    Each year, under the requirements of the European Union (EU) Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) (1), EU Member States must report various types of information relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels sold in their territories. More specifically, Member States must sample fuels each year and analyse their technical characteristics to ensure that they are consistent with the requirements of the ...

  • Additive blending improves fuel quality

    Fuel additive is substance which is added to fuel (to gasoline, kerosene, diesel and so on) for improvement of their properties. Depending on the quality of initial fuel, function, property and efficiency of additives, their combinations in a commodity product are various. The components content in fuel varies from 2 to 20% depends from the weight. Modern motor fuels made from basic fuel with ...

  • Optimum reaction time, performance and exhaust emissions of biodiesel produced by microwave irradiation

    While transesterification is well established, there remain considerable inefficiencies in existing transesterification processes. In this study an alternative energy stimulant, ‘‘microwave irradiation’’ was used for the production of the alternative energy source, biodiesel. The optimum parametric conditions obtained from the conventional ...

  • The impact of blending techniques, feedstock choice, and analytical techniques on biodiesel blend accuracy

    The National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, USA, conducted a nationwide study released in 2005 that compared the actual content of biodiesel in biodiesel/ petroleum diesel blends vs. the nominal content. Results showed that 36% of the samples were incorrectly labeled. Inaccurately blended biofuels can have a negative impact throughout the supply chain, affecting distributors, ...
