Elemental Composition Of Biodiesel Produced By Fast Pyrolysis Of Eucalyptus Leaves

  • ICIPPSD Conference


In this study, temperature studies were studied on the production of a product from selected eucalyptus leaving samples. The bio-diesel yield from these samples was further determined using non-model methods and analytical pyrolysis-gas chromatography / mass spectrometry (Py-GC / MS). The fresh eucalyptus leaves were obtained from nearby forest of Godhra (Gujarat), India. Results of the Proximate analysis of eucalyptus leaves powder sample study shows that volatile matter, fixed carbon, ash content and moisture content are 61.70 %, 26.37%, 8.36 % and 3.57%, The results of the basic analysis indicate that the carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur content is 89.17%, 7.36%, 1.01%, 1.98% and 0.26%, respectively. The higher heating value (HHV) of the biodiesel obtained from the biomass samples is 32.81 MJ/kg. Chemical composition analysis of Eucalyptus Biodiesel carried out and compared with standards. The study revealed that pyro-fuel is not only used as fuel but also can be purified and used as a commodity in the chemical and processing industries.
