Due to increasing demand of energy in the country, the consumption of crude oil derived fossil fuels is increasing and its combustion degrades the air quality due to the emissions of toxic gases. The importance of biofuels and bioenergy is being realized in the country in the last decade due to the heavy import budget of petroleum crude oil and environmental constraints. Biodiesel is an alternative fuel for diesel engine, used in transportation and energy producing sectors. Biodiesel is biodegradable, non- inflammable, non-toxic, environmentally friendly when compared to petroleum based diesel. Following are the objectives of this training workshop:
  • Production and characterization of biodiesel
  • Computer simulation of engine performance and emission characteristics fuelled on biodiesel
  • Techno-economic analysis of biodiesel
  • NEDUET Postgraduate/ Final Year Students of Relevant Technologies
By the end of the session participants will be able to:
  • Describe the process of biodiesel production 
  • Carry out characterization of biodiesel  
  • Get the certificate of participation upon successful completion of the training workshop
