Properties of fossil diesel oil blends with ethanol and FAME as fuels for diesel engines

  Ethanol is an attractive oxygenate not only for gasolines but also for diesel fuels. The paper presents the results of the study of stability of blends fossil diesel oil-ethanol, at the temperature of -10°C. Low-temperature phase stability was significantly influenced by the presence of water in the blend. The stability of blend was increased by the addition of FAME. The ternary mixture fossil diesel oil...

Evaluation of homogeneous catalysis and supercritical methodology for biodiesel production from Jatropha curcas, Azadirachta indica and Hevea brasiliensis oil seeds

  The present study investigated the production of biodiesel from Jatropha curcas,Azadirachta indica, Hevea brasiliensis oil seed via transesterification methods: base catalysed and supercritical methanol, a catalyst-free process, as a cleaner alternative to conventional chemically catalyzed process. In biodiesel production using base catalyzed transesterification, temperature, methanol: oil molar...
