Nayan, Niraj Kumar (2011) Experimental studies on extraction of valuable fuels from karanja and neem seed by pyrolysis. BTech thesis.
Today we see everywhere that oil has become inherent part of our daily life. Every activity is dependent on the requirement of fuels be it directly or indirectly. The demand of fuels is increasing day by day. Import dependence for oil in India which is about 70 per cent, is likely to increase further. As we all know that the petroleum resources are limited and are non-renewable in nature, we must start to think about the alternatives as we are likely to run out of the petroleum resources in few decades or so. Stress must be given to production of energy from renewable sources as they are biodegradable and non-toxic.
Here an attempt has made to study the feasibility of production of valuable fuels from natural but non edible seeds such as karanja and neem seeds by the method of pyrolysis. Here the production of the fuel can serve purpose of alternative fuels as biomass pyrolysis oil has potential to be used as fuel oil or its substitute.
