  • Cavitation Reactors

    By combining the developments in acoustics, hydrodynamics and chemical kinetics, a new promising device is entering the market: the cavitation reactors, used for processing of suspensions, emulsions and for intensification of chemical processes in solutions. These devices are can be used either separately (in laboratory test-benches) or in industrial mixing processes. In today’s market, two ...

  • 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 ...

  • Development and measured performance of a batch reactor for biodiesel production from fresh and waste vegetable oils

    The development and measured performance of a batch reactor for biodiesel production from fresh and waste vegetable oils as feedstock is presented. A biodiesel batch reactor was fabricated using locally sourced materials. Three different transesterification reactions were performed on the feedstocks using the fabricated reactor. The reaction temperature and time were varied for the fresh and ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • Monoglycerides reduction in rapeseed oil transesterification for production of high quality biodiesel

    Monoglycerides are intermediate by products in rapeseed oil transesterification. If they are present in the bio-fuel and the bio-fuel is used in vehicles, then they can form crystal at cold climate and block fuel injection system of the vehicles. To solve this problem kinetic study of transesterification of rapeseed oil has been carried out in this study. The process variables such as reaction ...

  • National brewery benefits from biogas

    Anheuser-Busch has installed anaerobic digestion systems at 10 of its 12 large breweries in the U.S., with an 11th system in design. Primary drivers are cost-avoidance for wastewater treatment fees and fossil fuel purchases. ANHEUSER-BUSCH, owner of 12 large breweries in the U.S., has committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 5 percent from 2005 levels by 2010. The company is well ...
