Biodiesel Feedstock Analysis 2nd Generation of Biofuels

Submitted by on March 12, 2012 – 7:45 pmNo Comment

(Mettler – Toledo Int. Inc/Environmental Expert)   The main obstacle in biodiesel production from waste fats and oils is their high free fatty acid content. Its precise measurement helps Professor Karel Kolomaznik’s Faculty of Applied Informatics team at Tomas Bata University in Zlín (Czech Republic) to develop suitable new technology.

Biodiesel from waste  The Tomas Bata University research group has developed a special catalytic system to process waste with high content free fatty acid fats and oils into biodiesel. Jiri Pecha, a member of the research group (see picture), says, ‘The precise measurement of the feedstock free fatty acid content is important not only for choosing an optimal waste processing procedure but also for minimizing processing costs.” This is determined with a METTLER TOLEDO Compact G20 Titrator. Installation was quick and only basic user training was necessary. Jiri Pecha then developed and improved his own method for fast and reliable free fatty acid content determination in the feedstock and reaction mixtures.  READ MORE
