Volume 9, Issue 4 , December 2018, , Pages 271-276

  Utilization of locally sourced materials promote raw materials Biodiesel was produced by transesterification of palm kernel oil (PKO) with ethanol in the presence of non-synthetic heterogeneous catalyst (combination of KOH/metaKaolin). The process parameters investigated are catalyst (1-6 g), ethanol ...  Read More

Heterogeneous Catalyst HZSM5 in Biodiesel Production from Rapeseed Oil in Batch Process

M. Mohammadpour; G. D. Najafpour; M. Rahimnejad; M. Kiakojouri

Volume 8, Issue 2 , April 2017, , Pages 95-101

  In this paper, HZSM5 zeolite was synthesized through reflux method on support material CaO (25, 35 and 45 wt%) in two specific methods: microwave and impregnation at high temperature. The zeolite catalyst was modified with impregnation of NaOH (2, 4, 8, 12 wt%) at room temperature. The modified zeolite ...  Read More

A Review on Comparison of Some Edible, Inedible and Waste Oil Sources with Algae for Biodiesel Production

K. Ganesh Babu; A. Veeresh Babu; K. Madhu Murthy

Volume 7, Issue 4 , October 2016, , Pages 315-324

  The present biggest challenging task in front of the world is to search new energy source. Apart from the all energy sources, biodiesel was the only dominant alternate energy to accomplish the fossil-fuel demand in the transport sector which consist a diesel engine. Biodiesel production from edible, ...  Read More

Synthesis of Biodiesel from Palm Kernel Oil Using Mixed Clay-Eggshell Heterogeneous Catalysts

M. A. Olutoye; O. D. Adeniyi; A. S. Yusuff

Volume 7, Issue 3 , July 2016, , Pages 308-314

  The synthesis and characterization of clay-eggshell mixed catalysts was carried out for the transesterification of palm kernel oil using methanol as solvent. Clay from anthill and waste chicken eggshells were powdered and mixed via incipient wet impregnation in 50-50, 80-20 and 20-80% proportions of ...  Read More
