Examination of Soybean Oils as Biodiesels

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Biofuels are fuels produced directly or indirectly from organic material-biomass—including plant materials and animal waste. In this laboratory we are using vegetable oil, specifically soybean oil, to make biodiesels. Currently the average annual production rate for crude oil is less than 700 million barrels per year. With all the oil we are going through for transportation use we are polluting the environment constantly. The point of this experiment is to see if biodiesels can be effectively used to replace or reduce the current usage of fossil fuels. The benefits of biodiesel are that they are cost-effective, environment friendly, and renewable. These biodiesels will not harm our wallets or our planet. We are using a process call transesterification to make our biodiesels. Transesterification is the process of detaching the fatty acids from our vegetable oils and react it with methanol forming our biodiesels. We purified the biodiesel by boiling off the excess methanol and washing off the sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is acting as the catalyst of the reaction. After the purification process we noticed a separation of layers. In the round bottom flask the water was on the bottom and the diesel ether was on the top. After we retrieved the diesel ether from the flask, we tested the diesel by combustion to see how much energy was attainable.
