  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Studies on behaviour of a DI diesel engine fuelled with bio oil biodiesel emulsions

    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 basis. The engine behaviour in terms of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Assessment of fuel efficiency of neem biodiesel (Azadirachta indica) in a single cylinder diesel engine

    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. The fuel properties of the biodiesel thus produced ...

  • Effects of nanoparticle-blended water?biodiesel emulsion fuel on working characteristics of a diesel engine

    An experimental investigation is carried out to establish the performance, emission and combustion characteristics of a diesel engine using jatropha biodiesel, jatropha biodiesel emulsion fuel (5% of water, 93% of biodiesel, 2% of surfactants) and alumina-nanoparticles-blended jatropha biodiesel emulsion fuels. The nanoparticles are mixed with the biodiesel emulsion fuel in the mass fractions of ...

  • Inclusion of biodiesel and PV modules in a wind diesel hybrid system supplying electrical loads on a small farm

    The growing interest in biofuels is a consequence of the need to reduce operating costs of energy systems and the need to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. The same applies to PV modules, comprising a solution environmentally desirable for power generation. This paper presents a study on the inclusion of biodiesel and PV modules in a system already in operation on a small farm in southern ...

  • 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 ...
