A Novel Intensive Production Method for Biodiesel--A One-Year Feasibility Study

The objective of this project is to determine the feasibility of a novel intensification technology based on electrostatic liquid spraying for improvement of biodiesel manufacture as a route to renewable feedstock fuel. The goal will be to develop a novel intensive continuous reactor for more efficient biodiesel production. Biodiesel offers an environmentally sound complementary extender for transportation fuels including conventional petroleum diesel and as a partial replacement for gasoline. Improved technology is needed to make biodiesel production from lower grade feed stocks cost-competitive.
