Making the use of biodiesel cost effective exploring alternative applications.
The project comprises a broad study of biodiesel, its applications, barriers
for further development, and future potential.
Two case studies were carried out in this project:
Practical experiment to measure the heat output from the exhaust gas from a biodiesel generator under different operation conditions, in order to design an exhaust gas heat recovery system.
Study of different applications for glycerine, by-product of biodiesel production.
Valuable guidance was given by Dr Craig McLean (Academic Supervisor)
Experimental data and samples of glycerine and biodiesel were obtained from Dowhill Farm, where the biodiesel is produced and the biodiesel generator operates.
