Hydro processing rape seed oil with gas oil for diesel fuel
Paper i proceeding, 2009
The work was divided into two different series of light gas oil (LLGO) and heavy gas oil (HGO). The rapeseed oil was blended with the gas oils in the following concentrations: 10%, 20% and 30%. The pressure was maintained constant. The flow rate, temperature were varied. It is possible to blend rape seed oil into HGO and LLGO in the production of low sulfur diesel fuel. The conversion of the rapeseed oil to hydrocarbon was higher when blended into LLGO compared to HGO. Low reaction temperatures and high flow rates give less amount of conversion of the rape seed oil.
