Reliance on solid-fuel cooking in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is a large and growing problem.
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.
