Determination of Various Properties of Biodiesel Produced from Different Feedstock
Biodiesel,cloud point, pour point, flash point, calorific value
This paper analyzes the various properties of biodiesel such as pour point,cloud point,viscosity,calorificvalue,etc. produced from different feedstocks.The aim of the work is to analyze change in these properties after converting feedstocks to biodiesel and then comparing it with ASTM 6751-02 standards to check whether they are suitable for diesel engines or not.The conversion of feedstocks is carried out by a process called transesterification. This conversion is carried out to reduce viscosity,pourpoint,etc.It has been observed that there is some remarkable change in the properties of oil after conversion.
