In a study similar to previous work on the transesterification of soybean oil 11,12it was concluded that KOH is prefer- able to NaOH in the transesterification of safflower oil of Turkish origin However, biodiesel from some animal fat feedstocks has sulfur levels that exceed the mandate and will require further treatment.

The higher the iodine value, the more unsaturation is present in the fat or oil.

Refined oils can be relatively expensive under the best of conditions, compared with petroleum products, and the choice of oil for biodiesel production depends on local availability and corresponding affordability. Although the mechanism is still not understood, biodiesel reduces the amount of soot produced and this appears to be associated with the bound oxygen in the fuel 3. The possibility of deriving fuels as well as lubricat- ing oils and greases from vegetable oils in the French African colonies was discussed Because many of the older refer- ences are not readily available, the summaries in Chemical Abstracts were used as information source in these cases.

The other approaches, i.

This article will briefly discuss economics and regulatory issues as well as conventional diesel fuel petrodiesel and then focus on research on the use of biodiesel in a diesel engine. Ethanol also was used in biodiesel production in biodiesfl situations in the United States where it was available from the fermentation of starch-rich feed streams Although biodiesel is generally insoluble in water, it actually takes up con- siderably more water than petrodiesel fuel.


We also sin- cerely thank the staff of AOCS Press for their professionalism and cooperation in bring- ing the book to print. Note that rapeseed contains low amounts of sulfur but variations such as canola have not only lower erucic acid content but also reduced sulfur The FFA are not soluble in the glycerol and will rise to the top where they can be removed and recycled.

The major disadvantage is the high cost of potassium hydroxide compared with that of sodium-based catalysts. Another fuel composition consisted of a vegetable oil, methanol or ethanol, a straight-chain geruard of octanol, and optionally waterwhich again had properties such as high water tolerance, acceptable viscosity and performance properties comparable to DF2.

These small injec- tions that precede the main injection also reduce engine noise and vibration.

Biodiesel: The Use of Vegetable Oils and Their Derivatives as Alternative Diesel Fuels

Thus, different FA can be attached to one glycerol bioriesel. Of potential concern for the use of animal fats, especially bovine hpids, in biofuel production is the possibility of exposure to prions, the infectious proteins responsible for bovine spongiform encephalopathy BSE mad cow disease in cattle and variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob vCJD disease in humans At least one critique of the use of vegetable oils, particularly olive oil, for fuel and lubricant use was published ed Nonetheless, adoption of this biidiesel for commercial biodiesel production was reported recently To understand the formation of emissions and deposits, and possibly direct the combustion to suppress undesirable emissions and deposits, it is essential to study the combustion of the fuel.

The Status Quo Lipid Reactant Throughout the world, the typical lipid feedstocks for biodiesel production are refined vegetable oils.

Today,5, Other observations 16 are i that a double bond s decrease s quality therefore, the number of double bonds should be small rather than large, ii that a double bond, if present, should be positioned near the end of the molecule, and iii no aromatic compounds should be present. Chemical Rubber Company, Cleveland, Specific fuel consumption was biodlesel for the neat esters but only 1.


Production and Evaluation of Biodiesel from Field Pennycress Oil

Nevertheless, biodiesel is attractive for other reasons. The first report on the use of HPLC 18 described the use of an iso- cratic solvent system chloroform with an ethanol content of 0.

Biodiesel can knothr as much as ppm of dissolved water, whereas diesel fuel usually takes up only -’50 ppm A specific value for the allowable methanol level is specified in European dw standards 0.

Any methanol remaining after this stripping process should be removed by the water washing process. Longchain, unbranched, saturated hydrocarbons alkanes have high CNs and good ignition quality while branched hydrocarbons and other materials such as aromatics have low CNs and poor ignition quality.

In knothee subsequent study 23the alkali-catalyzed methanolysis of refined sunflower oil was optimized by the application of factorial design and response surface methodology.

Such fuel is required for use at abnormally low temperatures. Another early study used H2SO4 as the transesterification catalyst Base catalysis of the transesterification with reagents such as sodium hydroxide is preferred over acid catalysis because the former is more rapid However, for solutions with methanol bikdiesel exceeding 0.

The viscosity of the distillate was Accumulation of such products in the lube oil could lead to lubricant thickening. Engine tests were performed on several microemulsions. A Brazilian study reported on 14 vegetable oils that were investigated The best catalyst was CaO on MgO. Also, pure unoxygenated hydrocarbons, like cetane, have CNs higher than biodiesel. Walton 39 summarized results on 20 vegetable oils castor, grapeseed, maize, camelina, pumpkinseed, beechnut, rapeseed, lupin, pea, poppyseed, peanut, hemp, linseed, chestnut, sunflower seed, palm, olive, soybean, cottonseed, and shea butter.
