  • 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 ...

  • Technical note: An approximate examination of the effects of esterification on the EROEI of biodiesel fuels

    Heat balance calculations on esterification of plant oil to make biodiesel are performed using recently published information from a laboratory reactor. It is concluded that such energy is relatively small and that attempts to improve the EROEI of biodiesels should not focus on the esterification process. [Received: January 8, 2009; Accepted: September 25, 2009]Keywords: biodiesel, ...

  • Energy analysis and potentials of biodiesel production from Jatropha Curcas in Tunisia

    Oleaginous plants such as Jatropha Curcas Linnaeus (JCL), not intended for human consumption but used for biodiesel production, could contribute to beneficial outcomes. This plant grows on poor land (arid and marginal land) and is drought resistant. Jatropha Curcas is native to South America and widely grown in South and Central America, Africa, and Asia (Achten et al., 2007; Kumar et al., 2011). ...

  • 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 ...
