Optimization and Fuel Properties of Water Degummed Linseed Biodiesel from Transesterification Process
Because of its environmental benefits and the fact that it is made from renewable resources such as vegetable oil and animal fats by reacting them with short chain alcohols, biodiesel has grown in popularity as an alternative fuel for diesel engines. The current study focuses on the optimization of water degummed Linseed biodiesel from the transesterification process, which involves the exchange of an ester’s organic group R” with the organic group of alcohol R’, which is often catalyzed by the addition of an acid or base catalyst. The maximum recovery of biodiesel yield was observed at the optimum operating conditions (0.8 percent catalyst amount NaOH, reaction time 1 hour, and reaction temperature 60°C). In comparison to conventional diesel fuel properties, particularly kinematic viscosity and carbon residue, oil must be purified through the degumming process before use in biodiesel production. This paper discusses the effect of degumming on the fuel properties of water degummed Linseed methyl ester and their various diesel blends.
