The essential objective of this investigation is to inspect the possibility of exploiting an equivalent blend of locally available bio-wastes, namely date pits (DP) and olive stones (OS), for the production of bio-oil (BO) and bio-char (BC) through thermal pyrolysis route in a semi-batch lab-scale reactor. The pyrolysis products yields from mixed (DP + OS) were optimized by tuning the experimental variables. Co-pyrolysis of mixed (DP + OS) exhibited the maximum output of liquid products (51.11 %, with a BO yield of 37.17 %) at 500 °C using feed particle size of 60 mesh for 80 min at 20 °C/min heating rate. For comparison, the pyrolysis of DP or OS at the previously obtained conditions was also achieved. The liquid products yield from the pyrolysis of DP was (52.30 %, with a BO yield of 31.0 %) compared to (46.0 %, with a BO yield of 24.55 %). FTIR spectroscopy, GC–MS, and elemental analysis were employed to analyze …

In this investigation, char derived by the pyrolysis of waste tires was steam activated, to prepare waste tires derived activated carbon (WTAC). The attained WTAC was then impregnated with KOH to synthesize a novel carbon base catalyst (KOH/WTAC). Transesterifcation reaction of a mixture of non-edible oils with methanol and mixed methanol/ethanol was conducted using so-prepared carbon base catalyst. X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Scanning electron microscope (SEM), thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA), energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS), and the Hammett indicator method, were applied to characterize the KOH/WTAC catalyst. The obtained outcomes disclosed that the WTAC impregnated with 50 wt% KOH and calcanied at 400 °C (50K400/WTAC) has exhibited the highest catalytic activity and basicity. The highest methyl ester yield of 94.50% was attained when …

Extraction of oil from wild mustard seeds with a yield of 34.0% w/w, followed by transforming it to biodiesel fuel via KOH-catalyzed transesterification with methanol assisted by a co-solvent with applying dry washing for purifying the as-produced methylic esters using the activated carbon which was prepared from mustard de-oiled residue was the major target of this investigation. Impact of reaction parameters on co-solvent transesterification of wild mustard oil (WMO) with methanol, like the molar ratio of methanol/WMO, amount and kind of co-solvent, the KOH amount, co-solvent/methanol % v/v, temperature and the duration, were inspected. The excellent conditions that resulted in the production of maximum biodiesel yield (97.88 ± 1.50%, 96.89 ± 1.0%purity) was accomplished using 6:1 methanol/WMO molar ratio, 1:1 hexane/methanol (% v/v), 0.80% KOH w/w, a temperature of 50°C for 45 minutes and (4.0% w/w …

A blend of radish oil (RO) and apricot kernel oil (AKO) was transesterified with methanol, ethanol, and their equivalent mixture, to yield methylic biodiesel (MBD), ethylic biodiesel (EBD), and methylic/ethylic biodiesel (MEBD), respectively with the refining of the so‐developed fuels through adsorption onto the activated carbon prepared by ZnCl2 activation of apricot shells. The best conversion of RO–AKO blend to MBD (96.12 ± 1.25%) and MEBD (94.23 ± 2.22) was attained at KOH concentration, 0.75% w/w of oil, alcohol/oil molar ratio, 6/1, mixing intensity, 600 rpm, reaction temperature, 60°C, and 45‐min reaction period, whereas the best conditions that produced the highest yield of EBD (95.19 ± 2.0 %) were KOH concentration, 1.0 KOH % w/w of oil, ethanol/oil molar ratio, 8/1, mixing intensity, 600 rpm, reaction temperature, 65°C, and 75‐min reaction period. The Fourier‐transform infrared spectroscopy and 1H …
