Study about Effect of Processed Biodiesel in Physicochemical Properties of Mixtures with Diesel Fuel in order to Increase their Antifouling Action

C. G. Tsanaktsidis, S. G. Christidis and G. T. Tzilantonis

Abstract—In this paper we try to study how processed biodiesel (with hydrophilic polymer) influences the physicochemical properties of their mixtures with diesel fuel. Using specific volumes of these mixtures, we determine humidity, density, kinematic viscosity and heat of combustion in order to investigate the effect of the polymer. The results show that humidity and kinematic viscosity could decrease considerably, so that mixtures of diesel and processed biodiesel become less pollutant to the environment than Diesel fuel.
