  • Machinery Exhibit 1900 Worlds FairRudolph Diesel demonstrated his compression ignition engine, which at the request of the French Government, ran on peanut oil. www.bc.edu/bc_org/avp/cas/fnart/arch/1900fair.html - Jeffrey Howe

  • History of Diesel Diesel Engines ran on Vegetable oils until the 1920's

    1920s petroleum diesel fuel became easier to produce due to advances in the distillation process, and became the main fuel for diesel engines

  • Diesel From Crude

  • Crude Oil - PetroleumA complex assortment of materials consisting of mixtures of hydrocarbons and other compounds containing variable amounts of sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen, and organometallics and whose physical properties may vary widely in volatility, specific gravity, and viscosity.

  • Demand For Crude1 barrel (bbl) = 42 gallons (U.S.) Globally about 85,000,000 bbl/dayOver 17,000,000 bbl of crude oil processed every day in the US (714,000,000 gal/day)800,000,000 gal/day total product demand360,000,000 gal/day gasoline140,000,000 gal/day distillate68,000,000 gal/day jet fuel150 U.S. refineries with capacities ranging from 15 mbbl/day (600,000 gallons/day) to over 500 mbbl/day (21,000,000 gallons/day and operate at 90+% capacity

  • Five Basic Refinery ProcessesSeparationAtmospheric and vacuum distillationExtractions (Solvent dewaxing) ConversionCatalytic, thermal and hydrocrackingCoking UpgradingReforming, alkylation, isomerization Finishing or treatingHydrotreating and desulfurizationBlending

  • Diesel HDS UnitThe HDS Unit uses catalysts to remove substances like sulfur, nitrogen and aromatics. When diesel comes out of the HSD unit, it is finished diesel fuel/heating oil. http://oilandgas.veoliawater.com/en/expertise/our_understanding/your_business/process_schematic/refinery_process_diagram/

  • High Sulfur Dieselpre-1993

  • High Sulfur DieselBefore 1993 sulfur content of diesel was unregulated

    Sulfur in diesel fuel could be as high as 5000ppm

  • The Good:Sulfur is a natural lubricant and Anti-Microbial

  • The Bad:High sulfur fuel = High sulfur emission = ACID RAIN

  • Low Sulfur DieselPost-1993

  • Low Sulfur Diesel1993 when the EPA mandated the lowering of sulfur in diesel fuels to a 500ppm

    This was done to reduce these harmful emissions

    When sulfur was reduced the fuel lost:Lubricity Microbial protection

  • Biodiesel 101

  • History Of BiodieselEnergy crunch of the 1970s stimulated biofuels research but federal research money disappeared in the 1980s.

    First literature use of the term biodiesel is found in a Chinese paper published in 1988. The next paper using that term appeared in 1991.

  • Biodiesel DefinedBiodiesel, n. -- a fuel comprised of mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats, designated B100, and meeting the requirements of ASTM D 6751.

    Biodiesel blend, n. -- a blend of biodiesel fuel meeting ASTM D 6751 with petroleum-based diesel fuel designated BXX, where XX is the volume percent of biodiesel.

  • Making BiodieselTransesterification (Catalyst)100 pounds + 10 pounds = 10 pounds + 100 poundsTriglyceride Alcohol Glycerin Mono-Alkyl Esters

  • Materials CompatibilityB100 may adversely affect some elastomers such as natural or nitrile rubbers over time.Most elastomers used after 1993 are compatible with B100 (Viton/Teflon).Blends (B20) effect is less, or non-existent.Normal monitoring of hoses and gaskets for leaks is sufficient with B20.Consult with your parts supplier or mechanical engineering partners.

  • Materials CompatibilityBiodiesel and biodiesel blends will form high sediment levels when in contact with the following metals:-Brass, Bronze, Copper, Lead, Tin and Zinc

    Biodiesel is compatible with:-Stainless Steel, Aluminum

  • If Every Trucker Used B2The industry would utilize 761 million gallons of B100 annually

  • U.S. Biodiesel Market Outlook

  • Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007 Renewable requirement for diesel must met by biodiesel.

    500 million gallons used in 20091 billion gallons used in 2012

  • Demand For Diesel In The US(In Millions Of Gallons)

  • Potential Demand For Biodiesel In The USDemand should not be measured by total demand but by the fraction that represents a realistic blend.

    The maximum potential rate is a B20 blend. B2 and B5 are very realistic.

    Even at displacement rates of 2-5% potential demand far exceeds current and 10-yr production rates.

  • Growth In Diesel Automobile MarketAccording to the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, there are currently more than 4.8 million diesel cars, pick-ups and SUVs registered in the US.J.D Power and Associates predict diesel sales to approximately triple in the next 10 years, accounting for more than 10% of US vehicles by 2015.As of January 2008, 12 auto manufacturers had announced or introduced at least 13 diesel models to the US market. The following brands have diesel models:Acura, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, General Motors, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Jeep, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, Volkswagen, Volvo

  • Increasing Biodiesel UseThe National Biodiesel Board has set a goal of replacing 5% of the nations on-road diesel with biodiesel by 2015.

    That amount is
