Biodiesel Standards & Properties

The US specification, ASTM D6751, defines biodiesel as mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils and animal fats. The type of alcohol used is not specified. Thus mono-alkyl esters could be produced with any alcohol (methanol, ethanol, etc.) so long as it meets the detailed requirements outlined in the fuel specification.

Fatty acid esters, natural detergent alcohols and biodiesel

Esterification: Fatty acid esters, natural detergent alcohols and biodiesel. Fatty acid esters are generally small volume products in the industry, except when used for biodiesel.. Fatty acids can be produced by hydrolysis of the fats or oils (triglycerides) or the fractional distillation of tall oil.

Analysis of Biodiesel Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) in ...

Fatty acids containing an odd number of carbon atoms, such as methyl heptadecanoate (C17:0), which is included in Method IP 585, are extremely rare. Due to differences in chemical structure, biodiesel fuel has different properties than jet fuel; it has a high freezing point (-5 °C) and poor oxidative stability, characteristics that make it unsafe in jet fuel.

FAQ Mixed Fatty Acid - agqm-biodiesel.de

'Mixed fatty acids' refers to the substance which is obtained as a by-product of biodiesel production immediately after transesterification and, depending on the process, consists of different quantities of free fatty acids, fatty acid methyl esters, glycerol and methanol.

As a future prospective fuel, biodiesel has to compete economically with petroleum diesel fuels and using less expensive feedstock containing fatty acids such as inedible oils, animal fats, waste food oil and byproducts of the refining vegetables oils is one way of reducing the biodiesel production costs [3].

INFLUENCE OF FREE FATTY ACID CONTENT IN BIODIESEL ...

Biodiesel, which is considered as a possible substitute of conventional diesel fuel is commonly, composed of fatty acid methyl esters that can be prepared from triglycerides in vegetable oils by transesterification with methanol [10]. The resulting biodiesel is quite similar to conventional diesel fuel in its main characteristics [11].

Titrating WVO | Quality Testing - Make-Biodiesel

Titrating WVO. WVO contains acids like Free Fatty Acids and vinegar that would react with our catalyst, much like baking soda (a base) and vinegar (an acid) react with each other. So, we add extra catalyst so that it can react with the acids in our WVO and still have the right amount left over to act as a catalyst for our biodiesel reaction.

Fatty Acid Stripping. Pre-refining the crude oils before entering the process of biodiesel or before using it as a bio-carburant is essential. The general process is composed of the following sections: acid degumming in order to reduce the phosphorus content to an acceptable level, then stripping of the free fatty acids under deep vacuum.

9.2 The Reaction of Biodiesel: Transesterification. Methanol should be as dry as possible. When the OH- ion reacts with H+ ion, it reacts to form water. Water will increase the possibility of a side reaction with free fatty acids (fatty acids that are not triglycerides) to form soap, an unwanted reaction.
