  • A hybrid multi–criteria decision support system for selection of optimum fuel blend

    The increasing diesel consumption, depletion of fossil fuels and environmental concerns have prompted usage of biodiesel. The selection of appropriate source and blending of biodiesel plays a role in alternate energy production. The aim of this study is to evaluate the optimum blend using Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) technique. Five alternative fuel blends are prepared by varying the ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • State of Chiapas, Mexico - case study

    A Green Fuels bio-refinery is producing biodiesel for the state of Chiapas in Mexico to power the entire public transport system of state capital Tuxtla Gutiérrez and neighbouring Tapachula. The project, called Conejobus, is one of the Chiapas government’s sustainable development initiatives. With 71 buses serving approximately 46,000 passengers a day, Conejobus was financed ...

  • Value stream mapping based on energy and cost system for biodiesel production

    Organisations have to give more attention to customer demands for survival and also for increasing their market shares. But customers' demands are not stable. The main problem of all organisations is how to cut costs during production process. The solution to this problem is built up with lean–based production systems. Value stream mapping identifies those areas where unwanted productivity is ...

  • Biodiesel Analysis with Mid Infrared - From Feedstock to Fuel

    Introduction The biofuels industry is growing rapidly and so is the need for analysis to ensure quality product. The parameters for quality biodiesel require different types of instruments and measurement systems, such as gas chromatographs (GC), titrators, centrifuges, infrared spectrometers... Although claims are out there for the analyzer that will do it all, unfortunately there is no one ...

  • 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 ...

  • Agricultural Residuals Drive Producer-Owned Energy

    Farmer-owned renewable energy enterprises are increasing rapidly — with alternative fuels such as biodiesel, ethanol and distiller’s grains becoming mainstream. MINNESOTA is home to 16 ethanol plants generating approximately 550 million gallons per year. Most of these new facilities are producer-owned. Many others are under construction or are in the planning process. In 2005, Minnesota farmers ...
