P. Arun Pandiyan | R. Arularasu | R. Amudhan
Abstract: The main objective of our project is to reduce the fuel consumption by using the bio-diesel and to compare the performance with the neat diesel. Nowadays with increase of population, they put demand on non-renewable resources. The disposal of Fatty crab by the Human beings is high due to increasing health conscious. The crab waste is liquid wastes that are not used. Therefore, the crab waste should be changed into usable resources. This project is about extraction of bio-diesel from crab waste. However, different animal waste can also use to prepare bio-diesel. This cost-effective process of bio-diesel from the crab waste is by trans-esterification process. The Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) and glycerin were obtained. The obtained FAME to be tested for various parameters namely flash point, fire point and density, calorific value. My work is detailed investigation on Performance of the diesel engine with different blends of bio-diesel and diesel namely B10 %, B20 %, B30 % and the obtained results compared to the neat diesel performance.
