Liquid Fuel From Bio-Mass - 2010 - 75 p.

Bio-energy is now accepted as having the potential
to provide the major part of the projected
renewable energy provisions of the future. Pyrolysi
s is one of the three main thermal routes, with
gasification and combustion, for providing a useful
and valuable bio-fuel. Thermal pyrolysis of
castor seeds, soybean seeds and polanga de-oiled ca
ke were carried out in a semi batch reactor
made up of stainless steel at temperature range fro
m 450
C to 600
C to produce bio-fuel. The
effect of temperature on pyrolysis of the above raw
materials is studied to know the optimum
temperature for maximum liquid yield. The thermal d
egradation temperatures of the raw
materials are studied using thermo gravimetric anal
ysis (TGA) at a heating rate of 20
C/min. in
air atmosphere. The oil samples obtained at optimum
condition is analyzed according to their
fuel properties, elemental analysis, functional gro
up presents, and compounds presents.
