Examination of (Canola Oil, Soybean Oil, Corn Oil) as Biodiesel

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



Abstract:

Biodiesel, mono alkyl esters is diesel fuel made from natural, renewable sources such as vegetable oils. These mono alkyl esters are prepared from canola oil. The approximate composition of the canola biodiesel includes: oleic acid (61%), Linoleic (32%), Palmitic (4%), Stearic (2%), saturated fatty (1%). Biodiesel can be prepared by transesterificaion. Canola oil is heated at 65oC to 70oC with methanol using sodium hydroxide as a catalyst. Water reduces the heat of combustion of the bulk fuel meaning more smoke, harder starting, and less power. Removing water from the biodiesel will increase energy in the heat of combustion. Different methodologies will be investigated to reduce the water content including the use of different catalyst and using different chemicals to break the emulsion. Removing water and heating prevents the decrease in energy of the biodiesel. Canola oil biodiesel was analyzed to determine heat of combustion, density, refractive index, and infra-red spectrum. Because of the lower levels of the toxic and irritating properties of genetically modified rapeseed oil, Canola oil is a more promising source for manufacturing than the natural oil as a renewable alternative to fossil fuels. Canola oil is made at a processing facility by crushing the genetically modified rapeseed.
