Economics and Regulatory Issues Economic reasons have been one manuxl the major obstacles in the use of biodiesel. Although engine modifications such as higher injection pressure were considered 41,46reduction of the high viscosity of vegetable oils usually was achieved by heating the vegetable oil fuel 29, Reproducibility was good with an SD of 0.

The biodiesel used in these tests was synthesized enzymatically. Refined vegetable oils 37 and high-quality gerhatd fats 38 can be transesteri- fied directly with both high chemical efficiency and good product yields.

Production and Evaluation of Biodiesel from Field Pennycress Oil

Blends of tallow esters methyl, ethyl, and butyl with conventional DF were studied for this reason In many developing countries, the overriding concern is to become independent of the imported commodity petroleum. While neat vegetable oils are competitive with conventional DF in some emission categories, problems were identified for other kinds of emissions. A more detailed discussion of the rationale for quality parameters in biodiesel fuel standards is given in parts of this book and the literature Oleagineux37, After the reaction, glycerol is removed from the methyl esters.


Eoglia, In situ Alkaline Transesterifica- tion: No saponification or off-line preseparation was required. Because its solvent properties are different from those of petrodiesel fuel, biodiesel may loosen these sediments and cause fuel filter plugging during the transition period.

It is obvious that the glycerides have no fuel value and in addition are likely, if anything, to cause an excess of carbon in comparison with gas oil.

Other CNs given in Ref. Energy Sources15, This was attributed to the isopropyl ester containing 5. Knotbe98, Most references in this section report that, at least in short-term trials, neat oils gave satisfactory engine performance and power output, often equal to or even slightly better than conventional DF. R is a mixture of various fatty acid chains.

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

These microemulsions usually consisted of DF, water, an alcohol or, combining the latter two components, an aqueous solution of an alcoholand a system of surfactants. Various test procedures such as ASTM DDand D were developed as an attempt to predict the tendency of a fuel to form in-cylinder carbon deposits.


Long-chain, saturated, unbranched hydrocarbons are especially suitable for conventional DF as shown by the CN scale. Helium was used as the carrier gas with a 1: The effect of solubilized soybean oil was studied. Presently the largest use is in ani- mal feeds. Physical Chemistry Research Mnaual. This includes detection of the blend level during use in an engine. A later paper by another author reported the autoignition temperature of various alkyl esters mmanual palm oil fatty acids They now occupy a prominent position in gehard development of alternative fuels.

As discussed above, one of the major problems associated with the use of biodiesel, including methyl esters, is its poor low-temperature properties, documented by relatively high cloud point CP and pour point PP Tables III and IV.

Also, the ideal analytical method would reliably and inexpensively quantify all contaminants even at trace levels with experimental ease in a matter of seconds at the most, or even faster for on-line reaction monitoring. There are numer- ous grades of tallow beef fat 40,41differentiated solely or largely on the basis of FFA content.
