CHARACTERIZATION OF NON-EDIBLE OIL FROM WASTE PLANT MATERIALS FOR BIOIDIESEL PRODUCTION

(Chemical Engineering Project Topics & Materials)

Oil obtained from orange peels and velvet tamarind nut by solvent extraction (n-hexane and acetone) using the soxhlet extractor were investigated as feedstock’s to determine some of the suitable parameters such as iodine value, saponification value, specific gravity, density, acid value and free fatty acid value, and their percentage yield that are suitable for biodiesel production. The density of orange and tamarind oil were found to be 0.9326g/cm3 and 0.8541g/cm3 respectively, their acid values were 19.81gNaOH for orange oil and 18.93gNaOH for velvet tamarind oil. The degree of unsaturation of both oils as determined by their iodine values were; 10.47gI2/100g for orange oil and 5.39gI2/100g for velvet tamarind oil. The viscosities of the oil were 11.29mPa.s and 26.55mPa.s for orange and velvet tamarind oil respectively. The various values obtained were compared with specifications of ASTM D6751 standard and established that the oil obtained from orange peels and velvet tamarind nuts could be used as alternative to/or blended with petro diesel.

Keywords: Biodiesel, Orange peel, Velvet Tamarind nut, n-hexane, Acetone.

    The word Nematode is derived from the Greek word, what is the word?. Meaning “thread like ones” (nema means “thread” and ode means “like”). Nematodes can therefore be described as thread-like worms. (dropking 2001). Nematodes, eelworms and round worms are synonymous for the same group of organisms. The Phylum Nemata, to which nematodes... Continue Reading
    ABSTRACT The isolation, identification and characterization of bacteria from organic waste were carried out. Sawdust waste (plant organic waste source) and abattoir waste water (animal organic waste source) samples were collected. The media used were nutrient agar for total aerobic plate count, McConkey agar for coliform count and cellulolytic... Continue Reading
    INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY Coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) is a tree, referred to as “The Tree of Life”.  Early  Spanish explorers  called  coconut,  Coco  (“monkey  face”)  because  of  the  three  indentations  (eyes) on the dehusked coconut fruit which resembles the head  and  face  of  a  monkey.  Nucifera...

    ABSTRACT Two experiments were conducted. The first evaluated beef smoked using different plant materials ( Acacia raddiana, Eucalyptus camaldutensis, Azadirachta indica  and  Cocos nucifera ) as source of smoke. The effect of the plant materials on the organoleptic, microbial and physicochemical properties of smoked beef was evaluated. In the... Continue Reading
    Briquette is a block of compressed materials suitable for burning. Briquettes can be made from low cost materials such as old newspaper, any bio mass wastes and agricultural residues. They can be used as fuel instead of charcoal, firewood or mineral coal and costs less. Depending on which materials were used to make the briquettes, they may burn... Continue Reading
