A study of biodiesel production from waste vegetable oil using eggshell ash as a heterogeneous catalyst
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2015)
While biodiesel has the potential to resolve the energy crisis, its production is hampered by both feedstock and catalyst availability. The aim of this current study is to investigate the production of biodiesel from waste ...
The treatment of biodiesel wastewater using an integrated electrochemical and adsorption process
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2018)
The production of biodiesel is an energy and water intensive process. The wastewater that is produced during this process is high in concentrations of COD, BOD, FOG and various other contaminants. Since it contains low ...
Biodiesel production from edible oil wastewater sludge with bioethanol using heterogeneous nano-magnetic catalysis
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2019)
Currently, most sludge from the wastewater treatment plants of edible oil factories is disposed to landfills, but landfill sites are finite and potential sources of environmental pollution. Production of biodiesel from ...
