Abstract

The CaO/Mg-Al-O and CaO/Zn-Al-O solid base catalysts were prepared by co-precipitation, impregnation and calcination, and the KF/Mg-Al-O and KF/Ca-Al-O solid base catalysts were prepared by co-precipitation, calcination and grinding. Activation treatment of used catalyst was conducted by alcohol...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the study was to examine the impact of bioethanol additive on mechanical properties of stretchable starch films. The test consisted of adding bioethanol to the plasticizer, constituting a mixture of water and glycerol. Mass proportion of plasticizer to raw starch was 8:1 (800 g/100...

AbstractFull Text

The performance of power ghani and screw expeller was studied and it was found that untreated kernels did not yield oil. Therefore, three treatments i.e. cold water, hot water and steaming were done to study the percentage oil recovery and it was 18.66%, 25.40% in 12 kg batch. Steaming in 30 min...

AbstractFull Text

Jatropha grows in tropical and sub tropical regions. Jatropha oil is a possible feedstock for biodiesel production. Oil extraction can be done either mechanically or chemically. The oil can be used for lighting purposes. Soap production on a jatropha oil basis is possible with only two additional...

AbstractFull Text

Microbial contamination of stored diesel/biodiesel fuel over time and the consequent changes in the fuel chemical composition is of serious concern. The use of biocides has also been shown to be an effective strategy to address this challenge but in some countries like Brazil, no products have been...

AbstractFull Text

Minor components found in biodiesel can affect its stability and cold flow properties. Without extensive post treatments, trace compounds such as sterol glycosides (SG) can remain at unacceptable levels in finished biodiesel fuels. This study proposes to remove SG from reacted Fatty Acid Methyl...
