The Status of Biodiesel as an Alternative fuels Amoora, Surahonne and other oils used for Diesel Engine - An Overview

S. S. Saddu | Dr S. B. Kivade


Abstract: In the present situation it is required to find the alternate fuel source due to the increase in industries and depletion in convention resources. Majority of the countrys energy needs are supplied through petrochemical source, Coal and Natural gases. The above sources are finite and at current usage rates will be consumed shortly. The diesel fuel has an essential function in the industrial economy and developing countries. The diesel engines are the main source of power generation and transportation, hence diesel is being used extensively, but rapid depletion of conventional energy sources and the rising oil prices have led to the search for alternate fuels. This paper reviews the history of biodiesel development and production practices. Fuels related properties are reviewed and compared with those of conventional diesel fuel. The effect of use of different biodiesel fuels an engine power; fuel consumption, thermal efficiency and engine emissions are collected and analyzed with that of conventional diesel fuel. In the subsequent section analyzed the properties of Amoora and Surahonne oils
