PPO (or SVO)
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 volatile world market prices for fossil fuels in the past years have significantly increased interest in the development of indigenous sources of energy in the Pacific islands.
Fossil fuels (sometimes called petro-diesel) for use in compressed ignition (diesel) engines are increasingly being replaced by fuels consisting of a blend of petro-diesel and oils from a vegetable origin (either pure or after a process
