Storage and thermal stability of biodiesel produced from manketti nut oil of Southern Africa origin with the infuence of metal contaminants and antioxidants
(Springer Nature Switzerland AG., 2020-04-20)
Biodiesel has widely been produced from common edible oils; however, food versus fuel conficts has motivated researchers to search for other less common feedstock for production of biodiesel. Thus, this study investigates ...
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 ...
Influence of metal contaminants and antioxidant additives on storage stability of biodiesel produced from non-edible oils of Eastern Africa origin (Croton megalocarpus and Moringa oleifera oils)
(Elsevier Ltd., 2015-10-15)
The effect of metal contents and antioxidant additives on the storage stability of biodiesel produced from less common non-edible oils of Eastern Africa origin (Croton megalocarpus and Moringa oleifera) were evaluated and ...
