Impact of Antioxidant Additives on the Engine Performance and Exhaust Emissions Using Biodiesel made from Jatropha Oil of Eastern Africa Origin
(Journal of the South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering, 2016)
Biodiesel’s chemical nature makes it more susceptible to oxidation in comparison to mineral diesel. Biodiesels are doped with antioxidants to increase oxidation stability for long term storage. However, it is quite ...
An Analysis of Fuel Properties of Fatty Acid Methyl Ester from Manketti Seeds Oil
(Taylor & Francis Online, 2014-11-20)
The fatty acid methyl esters (FAME)produced from vegetable oils, animal fats, or waste oils known as biodiesel has attracted attention as possible replacement of fossil fuels. The fuel properties of biodiesel are similar ...
Review of the stability of biodiesel produced from less common vegetable oils of African origin
(South African Journal of Science, 2015-09-25)
The stability of biodiesel is dependent on storage conditions such as contact with ambient air and metals, exposure to sunlight and high temperature conditions which accelerate oxidation reactions. In addition, biodiesels ...
Impact of antioxidant additives on the oxidation stability of biodiesel produced from Croton Megalocarpus oil
(Elsevier Ltd., 2011-06)
The increase in crude petroleum prices, limited resources of fossil fuels and environmental concerns have led to the search of alternative fuels, which promise a harmonious correlation with sustainable development, energy ...
