Abstract

Variety of edible and nonedible oils can be used as the feedstock for biodiesel production. Among the edible oil source includes both virgin vegetable oils and waste vegetable oils. Rapeseed, soybean, and palm oils are most commonly used to produce biodiesel. In addition to its sources, the combustion process, the amount of produced energy, and the rate of emissions from biofuel inflammation also are crucial in to the ability of biodiesel to meet global energy demands. The level of energy produced and the rate of emissions can be evaluated with Chemical Equilibrium with Applications (CEA) software. This paper attempts to scrutinize and determine the palm oil combustion properties under various thermodynamic conditions using the CEA software. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
