Solid Zn-base Catalysts for Simultaneous Transesterification and Esterification
Description: WSU researchers have developed a series of novel heterogeneous catalysts for simultaneous transesterifrication and esterifrication of fats and oils that can be used in the production of biodiesel. These catalysts are solids, a mixture of zinc oxide and other metal oxides species which provide the potential to convert all kinds of oil f...

Effect of Natural and Synthetic Antioxidants on the Oxidative Stability of Biodiesel
Researchers at WSU’s National Biofuels Energy Laboratory have identified antioxidant additives for biodiesel fuel made from a variety of feedstock that provide advantages to current technologies. A significant problem associated with the commercial acceptance of biodiesel fuel is poor oxidative stability. The presence of high levels of unsaturated ...
