AUTHOR: UDE, CALLISTUS NONSO

DEPARTMENT: CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

AFFILIATION: NNAMDI AZIKIWE UNIVERSITY, AWKA

The purpose of this work was to produce biodiesel from refined cottonseed oil by alkali transesterification with methanol using different conditions and focusing on; characterization of the oil, determination of the fuel properties, kinetics and thermodynamics, optimization of the process parameters using RSM, engine performance testing and prediction of model for the performance using Artificial Neural Network (ANN). 410 more words
