This reports describes experiments with running diesel engines on Jatropha oil, or Methyl ester, as well as a litterature survey
In this thesis, the technical feasibility of using jatropha oil and biogas for dual fuel generators is investigated. This technology could be used for electricity generation in rural areas in developing countries.
This note is intended for technicians and project managers starting up projects with Jatropha production, pressing and applying the PPO (pure plant oil, straight
vegetable oil) in diesel engines.
The research underlying this document was performed to judge the applicability of chemical extraction instead of cold pressing to gain oil from jatropha curcas
People living in the poorest regions in the world, e.g. large parts of the African, Asian and
Latin American continents, often lack access to energy sources in general. One approach
Basicamente, o processo de aquisição do óleo de sementes oleaginosas é tão antigo quanto à humanidade.
Este estudo foi realizado com o objectivo de avaliar a incidência da entomofauna
existente na cultura da Jatrofa em Moçambique, visto esta ser uma nova cultura e não se

engine and is in demand nowdays due to several
factors including price stability, limited reserve of
carbon fuel, and environmental issue. Jatropha is one
