    ABSTRACT: The interest in using Jatropha curcas L. (JCL) as a feedstock for the production of bio-diesel is rapidly growing. The properties of the crop and its oil have persuaded investors and policy makers to consider JCL as a substitute for fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In this report, we gave an overview of the currently... Continue Reading

    Team Oil from [the] Soil is comprised of a group of senior chemical engineers at Calvin College who are proposing an alternative method to producing biodiesel. This alternative entails converting the oil found in seeds from the Jatropha Curcas plant into biodiesel. Team Oil from [the] Soil plans to design and optimize a full scale plant that...

    Abstract The optimization of biodiesel production from two non-edible oils and studies of their fuel and biodegradability properties was carried out. The two oil feedstocks (Yellow oleander and Castor oils) were extracted from their seeds using an oil expeller and their physicochemical properties such as iodine value, moisture content,...

    It is of no doubt that one day, fossil fuels, which the whole world highly depends on, will come to a halt in a few decades to come. To this reason, researches have been geared towards alternative sources of energy: biodiesel, a form of renewable energy (energy that can be regenerated once used up), is one that has been made known and being tested...
