Characteristics of Biodiesel

The physicochemical properties of biodiesel are nearly similar to diesel fuel. The most important properties for biodiesel are cetane number, heat of combustion, viscosity, oxidative stability, cold flow properties and lubricity (Knothe et al., 2005). Table 1 presents the main properties of microalgae biodiesel compared with diesel and 1st generation biodiesel. 1. The cetane number … Read More
