TY - CHAP A1 - Vladimir Purghart ED1 - Gisela Montero ED2 - Margarita Stoytcheva Y1 - 2011-11-16 PY - 2011 T1 - Analysis of FAME in Diesel and Heating Oil N2 - This book entitled "Biodiesel: Quality, Emissions and By-products" covers topics related to biodiesel quality, performance of combustion engines that use biodiesel and the emissions they generate. New routes to determinate biodiesel properties are proposed and the process how the raw material source, impurities and production practices can affect the quality of the biodiesel is analyzed. In relation to the utilization of biofuel, the performance of combustion engines fuelled by biodiesel and biodiesels blends are evaluated. The applications of glycerol, a byproduct of the biodiesel production process as a feedstock for biotechnological processes, and a key compound of the biorefinery of the future is also emphasized.
