Development of an Improved Biodiesel Plant

C. N. Nwogu | A. I. Obi

Abstract: An improved biodiesel plant consisting of an oil tank, reaction chamber, centrifuge, evaporation tank and reservoir tank was designed, fabricated and evaluated. The developed plant produces biodiesel from used cooking oil obtained from restaurants, fast foods and hotels. The results of its performance test indicated 13.93kg/hr and 82.68 % as the throughput and efficiency respectively. All materials used for the fabrication were sourced locally. The adoption and commercialization of the plant will help preserve Nigerias ever depleting petroleum reserve as well as reduce environmental pollution caused by inappropriate disposal of used cooking oil.
