Plant Oil-Diesel Blends As Fuel Biodiesel Solutions
The various studies on the use of plant oil-diesel fuel blends indicate that they can be used in diesel engines for short periods with no significant decline in performance provided that the concentration of the plant oil in the blend is less than 20%. Long-term engine performance tests show that plant oil concentrations higher than 20% can have adverse effect on the engine due to accumulation

Biodiesel Safety and Best Management Practices for Small
Biodiesel fuel can be burned in any diesel engine without major modifications to the equipment. Biodiesel blends readily with petroleum diesel. Fuel blends are referred to by the percentage of biodiesel in the mix (e.g., B20 is 20 percent biodiesel). Biodiesel fuel can also be blended with diesel fuel oil for use in heating appliances.

This was the big story of the month: Researchers at InnovaTek have developed hand-sized microreactors that can turn biodiesel (or any other liquid fuel) into a hydrogen stream for use in an adjoining fuel-cell. Chevron has already invested $500,000 to develop hydrogen refueling stations for fuel-cell powered cars. InnovaTek hopes to eventually install the microreactors in vehicles, which would
Arkansas biodiesel plant 100 percent soybeans Farm
Arkansas biodiesel plant 100 percent soybeans. Sep 29, 2006. A new facility that will produce biodiesel fuel made entirely from soybean oil will be built near DeWitt, Ark. Founders of Arkansas SoyEnergy Group, LLC, say they expect to produce the first 100 percent soy-based fuel by late 2007. The plant will crush soybeans grown within a 50-mile radius of DeWitt, creating a new market for area
Using Biodiesel as a Fuel Farm Energy
As little as 1 percent biodiesel added to petrodiesel will improve the fuel’s lubricating properties and thus could extend the life of various diesel engine components. Biodiesel also has a high cetane value and can be blended with petrodiesel to improve the burning characteristics of lower quality petro-diesel. In older diesel engines, the use of biodiesel in blends of 20% and higher will
FACT SHEET: Biodiesel: Solution or Problem?
Biodiesel Basics A versatile fuel based largely on domestic soybeans, biodiesel can be substituted for and combined with petroleum diesel. At a time when only 1/3 of U.S. oil consumption comes from domestic sources, President Bush has called it "one of our nation's most promising alternative fuel sources."1 He is sadly misguided.

There is a $1 per gallon “blenders’” credit for companies that produce pure 100 percent biofuels and then blend in 0.1 percent heating oil or diesel fuel to produce B99.9 made from either first-, second-, or third-generation sources. This blending triggers the credit and allows the product to be competitive with traditional fossil fuels.

Since oils are used primarily for biodiesel production, viscosity is the most commonly used measurement. Oils used for biodiesel maintain some viscosity throughout the process, from 30- to 50-cst in its raw form, to about 5-cst at 40-deg C as 100 percent biodiesel. 3 These generally clean liquids are easily handled with gear or positive displacement pumps for higher viscosity applications and
