Liquid Fuel From Bio-Mass

Shadangi, Krushna Prasad (2010) Liquid Fuel From Bio-Mass. MTech by Research thesis.



Bio-energy is now accepted as having the potential to provide the major part of the projected renewable energy provisions of the future. Pyrolysis is one of the three main thermal routes, with gasification and combustion, for providing a useful and valuable bio-fuel. Thermal pyrolysis of castor seeds, soybean seeds and polanga de-oiled cake were carried out in a semi batch reactor made up of stainless steel at temperature range from 450oC to 600oC to produce bio-fuel. The effect of temperature on pyrolysis of the above raw materials is studied to know the optimum temperature for maximum liquid yield. The thermal degradation temperatures of the raw materials are studied using thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) at a heating rate of 20oC/min. in air atmosphere. The oil samples obtained at optimum condition is analyzed according to their fuel properties, elemental analysis, functional group presents, and compounds presents.
