Slide 1

Biodiesel – utilizing waste agrarian items to power school transports Part 1 - Synthesis Presented to CONASTA 59 2010 by the Primary Industry Center for Science Education (PICSE) Dr Robert Elliott (Dr) David Schaller – Macquarie Oils Ms Anna Paice - UTAS

Slide 2

What is PICSE? Essential Industry Center for Science Education based at UTAS National system 8 Activity Centers Attracting gifted understudies to study science, experiencing real aptitudes deficiencies Teacher PDs, class visits, Industry Placement Scholarship for yr 11/12, Science Camps yr 10, classroom assets, Science Investigation Awards yr 5-12

Slide 3

Industry Placement Scholarship

Slide 4

Learning Outcomes Make atmosphere face off regarding concrete Understand carbon nonpartisan fuel Understand why BD (not straight veg oil) Chemistry: fats, cleanser and biodiesel Poor BD union - prompts examination, experimentation, improvement

Slide 5

Connections to educational modules Renewable fills Titration – corrosive/base Saponification response Organic mixes – naming Esterification response Factors affecting response rates, consummation/balance Experimental plan and process

Slide 7

Driving far and wide on straight vegetable oil (SVO) (Biodiesel instruction venture: Oil+Water - > )

Slide 8

Ignition by pressure: no sparkle plug in diesels

Slide 9

High consistency of straight vegetable oil (SVO)

Slide 10

Biodiesel versus vegetable oil (SVO) Viscosity - > fine splash Demo

Slide 11

Slide 12

Engine harm from utilizing straight vegetable oil (SVO)

Slide 13

Biodiesel versus vegetable oil (SVO) Flammability (streak point) Whoosh!

Slide 14

Converting fats to biodiesel glycerol TG (Fat) DG MG +

Slide 15

Safety Biodiesel is non-dangerous, however... making biodiesel... Combustible – liquor Toxic-methanol Corrosive – burning pop Heat/flashes... Picture from

Slide 16

Ethanol-based biodiesel demos? The first Dr Pepper methanol convention Existing little scale ethanol-based lesson Our adjustment of the Dr. Pepper convention to ethanol Or Small scale ethanol ref

Slide 17

+ H 2 + H 2 O + liquor Margarine + H 2 Soap (FFAs) Biodiesel (FAMEs) Alkanes

Slide 18

Dry liquor, dry NaOH, dry/new oil: <1% FFAs, dry crystal, dry air Soap + H 2 O + oil + shaking = ??? Have you ever attempted to blaze cleanser? Reward: why doesn\'t cleanser blaze?

Slide 19

Making the impetus with channel cleaner +

Slide 20

Progress of the transesterification response

Slide 21

Burning glycerol makes a sticky wreckage you don\'t need in your motor! it be able to be-to-make-fluffy.html

Slide 22

\'Pre-wash\' helps glycerol separate + 1 Tbs H 2 O 100 ml + 20ml = around 150 ml

Slide 23

Washing with salt water † to evacuate debases: NaOH, ethanol, cleanser

Slide 24

Modifications to the Dr Pepper demo convention Use less dangerous ethanol Dry ethanol utilizing polenta (or rock salt)(Optional?) Longer response times (heat?) Trigger glycerol detachment with H 2 O prewash Prevent emulsions with salt washes Or Small scale ethanol ref

Slide 25

Bob Elliott\'s Biodiesel Protocol Add 30g NaOH to 200mL dry ethanol >95% in a tapered cup, blend well. Utilize a hotplate to break up impetus in the liquor if required. Utilize a vacant, totally dry 1.25L soda pop jug or 1L isolating pipe. Include 300mL of new vegetable oil (canola, soy bean, olive, poppy, almond and so forth) then include the disintegrated catalyst+alcohol blend. Delicately shake by modifying jug or pipe a few times and leave to settle overnight, or think about various response times eg 5 mins, 10 mins, 20 mins, 30 mins. Wash the biodiesel
