About the Edition

A single-step batch transestenfication process that uses sodium hydroxide catalyst has been developed for the conversion of refined vegetable oils to biodiesel methyl esters that meet biodiesel standards particularly with regard to glyceride content and acid number. Tetrahydrofuran is used as a cosolvent to form a single phase for the initial homogeneous reaction. The optimal methanol to oil molar ratio is 12:1 and the optimal sodium hydroxide catalyst concentration is 0.74 wt% based on the oil. A glycerol-rich phase separates during the reaction and mixing is required to remove hydroxide ion to this phase and provide methoxide ion to the methyl ester-rich phase. Biodiesel standard product is formed in 15 minutes in a continuously mixed batch reactor at 23ʻC. Two proposed isolation and purification treatments have been tested successfully to remove the solvents, mineral acid, salt of mineral acid, glycerol, and glycerides to refine the crude methyl ester products.

The cost of biodiesel production is mainly affected by the system used and cost of feedstock. Currently, waste oil or fat is used in the production of biodiesel as 70 to 90% of the production cost is attributed to raw Size: KB.   Transesterification is one of the methods for biodiesel production in which oil or fat is reacted with alcohol, such as methanol or ethanol, in the presence of a catalyst to form alkyl ester and Author: Sarina Sulaiman. The biodiesel yield could be improved by introducing excess amounts of methanol to shift the equilibrium to the right-hand side. The experimental results, illustrated in Fig. 3, indicate the molar ratio of methanol to oil has a significant impact on the biodiesel biodiesel yields grew as the molar ratio increased, and the yield was 75% at a molar ratio of methanol to oil when Cited by:

If you are looking for any biodiesel related information, this website provides you with an unbiased information through peer-reviewed publications, videos, technical notes, and thousands to literature organized with the topics you are looking for. This should be the first (and probably the last) page you will need to get information. In the present study, a microreactor with T-shaped junction was used, as continuous flow reactor, for transesterification of soybean oil with methanol in presence of KOH. The influences the some process variables such as; KOH concentration, molar ratio of methanol to soybean oil, residence time and reaction temperature on transesterification of Cited by: higher than required by the standard (from twice for sunflower oil biodiesel to 10 times for soybean oil biodiesel). 5. CONCLUSIONS Experiments of transesterification process at room temperature (°C) in a batch reactor performed in this investigation have proved that this method of biodiesel production is technologically justifiable.

Biodiesel production is the process of producing the biofuel, biodiesel, through the chemical reactions of transesterification and involves vegetable or animal fats and oils being reacted with short-chain alcohols (typically methanol or ethanol).The alcohols used should be of low molecular weight. Ethanol is the most used because of its low cost, however, greater. Updated: November 1, Current Situation Biodiesel works as a cleaner-burning, renewable alternative to petroleum diesel, offering a viable opportunity to diversify the U.S. transportation fuel supply.1 Biodiesel consumption in required production use of billion pounds of soybean oil or the oil from million soybean bushels.2,3 U.S. consumers used nearly 2 billion.
