  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Maintaining biodiesel quality standards

    A problem that is sometimes encountered with biodiesel blends is inaccurate blend ratios. This article describes a quick analytical method to assess blend ratios and ensure fuel performance. According to a study1 done by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the chief problem found with biodiesel blends was inaccurate blend ratios. Retail customers and fleet managers do not typically worry ...

  • Mid-infrared analysis of biodiesel

    The biodiesel industry is growing rapidly. and so is the need for analysis 10 ensure quality product and keep biodiesel in good standing. Biodiesellhat has residual glycerin, glycer· ides, or inorganic salts from the production process can cause problems such as Iilter plugging and injector coking in a diesel engine. The biodiesel blend ralio also can affect cold weather performance, lax ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The effects of biodiesel usage on the components of an engine

    In this paper, the research results obtained on the influences of biodiesel on the components of an engine are presented. The study was carried out at the Dumlupinar University in Turkey. Biodiesel has been an alternative fuel for diesel engines since 1900s. However, the use of biodiesel has recently been increasing owing to indelible increase in petroleum price and consumption. Furthermore, the ...
