Biodiesel vaporises at higher temperatures, which can lead to problems with electronic fuel injection systems and particulate filters.
Essentially, if we were to use the hydrocarbon oils from this alga to be a renewable fuel source, there would be no need to change any kind of infrastructure for making the fuel.
Although a small number of businesses are using spent coffee grounds to make biofuels, researchers at Lancaster University have found a way to significantly improve the efficiency of the process
As an alternative to liquid fossil fuels, biodiesel extracted from microalgae is an increasingly important part of the bioenergy field.
Preem and Vattenfall have concluded an agreement to investigate the potential of using climate-smart hydrogen gas in the large scale production of biofuel for the Swedish market.
The upgrades include the addition of biodiesel distillation and other manufacturing upgrades, which will allow the 45 million gallon nameplate capacity biorefinery to use a wider array of lower carbon intensity feedstocks.
