  • 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 ...

  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • 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, ...

  • Meeting the Challenges of Biodiesel Blend Measurements with Portable Mid-Infrared Analyzers - Case study

    In a published paper on biodiesel blend quality submitted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory1, the chief problem found with biodiesel blends was inaccurate blend ratios. Retail customers and fleet managers do not typically worry about whether the blend ratio is correct until a problem occurs. For fleet managers, an incorrect blend can mean a total shutdown of operations. On the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Investigation of fatty acid methyl esters in jet fuel

    Sustainable aviation fuels research has considerable momentum in efforts lead by government, academia and industry. Environmentally sound domestic fuels allow significant benefits, while also creating some challenges due to their novelty. One of these challenges is the cross contamination of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) in biodiesel with jet fuels. It was suspected that sharing the same supply ...
