Suitability of Some Fruit Seeds Oil for Use as Biodiesel Fuel

S. K. Pawar, Dr. J. A. Hole


Abstract: Due to recent petroleum crisis and unavailability of petroleum diesel the demand for petroleum diesel is increasing day by day hence there is a need to find out an appropriate solution. Bio fuels are being given serious consideration as potential sources of energy in the future. Biodiesel is a clean burning alternate fuel, produced from both edible and non-edible oil seeds. It can be used in compression-ignition engines with little or no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics. It can be stored just like petroleum diesel fuel. The use of biodiesel in conventional diesel engines results in substantial reduction of unburnt hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and particulate matters. Its higher cetane number improves the ignition quality even when blended in petroleum diesel. Various fruit contain large amount of oil in their seeds. Studies have been undertaken to compare free fatty acid composition and physico chemical properties of seeds oil & biodiesel produced from various fruit seeds such as Chikku, Awala, Jamun, Tamarindus Indicus, Orange, Moringa Oleifera etc.
