BIOFUEL SYNTHESIS FROM WASTE OIL AND GREASE: CHARACTERIZATION, BLEND PERFORMANCE, AND COMBUSTION ANALYSIS
Biofuel was synthesized via trans-esterification from a variety of feedstocks to include waste oil and grease from campus dining operation. Biofuel was characterized for suitability as an alternative fuel, blended with commercial diesel fuel, and used to power a 5-kW diesel generator. The biofuel, its blends, exhaust gasses, and exhaust particulate matter are characterized using FT-IR (solid, liquid, gas), GC-MS, AFM, and Viscometry with future work to include ICP-MS.
