La banda que escribía torcido (Spanish Edition)
For instance, the French have very justly and naturally a term signifying a man or a woman with a bad breath, Punais and Punaise ; the Spanish and English, being generally devoid of this quality, have no corresponding term, and are without any such word. This, however, is not the only difference between the languages and people of those countries.
With every French thought and word something of colour and stage effect is associated; it is the spirit of the people and of their language, while that of Spain and England is metaphysical, or mere abstract truth and reason. On the other hand, it must be admitted, that the philanthropic observer of men and manners will view, with profound regret, the superabundance of Spanish epithets injurious to women, and feel perhaps disposed to consider the virtue of females as the fairest criterion of national morality.
However this may be, there is evidently more wisdom in raising than depreciating the moral qualities of those who necessarily teach the first rudiments of knowledge, and certainly modulate the character of all mankind. Contrary also to the vulgar and even traditional opinion in Britain, there is, in fact, no radical and appropriate Spanish term, which exclusively and forcibly conveys the same idea as the English word jealousy. Nevertheless the Spaniards have evinced great wisdom in carefully guarding their language and sentiments from the deteriorating influence of French corruption.
In this respect, their conduct presents a noble example to the modern English, who really seem to be almost ashamed of their mother tongue, and to have nearly forgotten that their radical language is as old, and incomparably better than that of France. The fashionable and vulgar foplings of the day have expelled the s and t final almost entirely from their jargon, and given an Anglo-Gallic pronunciation to plain English words, that is more analogous to the hideous accents of unfortunate maniacs than the tones of rational beings.
Such things require the admirable pen of Cadalso, in his Eruditos a la Violeta. This absurdity is, indeed, become so enormous and offensive, as to astonish and perplex strangers, while it excites the liveliest regret in the minds of reflecting natives. It has been attempted to palliate this disgrace, by alleging that the English language is chiefly derived from the French. Some etymologists, it is true, have read English through French spectacles, and indulged their indolence, or masked their ignorance, by producing parallel words from the French. There is, however, no notion more erroneous or unfounded, than that of the English tongue being derived from the French, to which it, correctly speaking, owes nothing whatever.
The most cursory investigation must satisfy every inquirer, that the grand basis of the English is the Anglo-Saxon, mixed with Latin and Greek, which were popular languages in England at two different periods of the dark ages. Some barbarous law terms, and a few, but very few, other words, have been borrowed from the French, while the genius and spirit of the language still bear the noble features of their Saxon and classic origin. This was universally admitted, till Bolingbroke, and his follower Pope, introduced the French style into prose and rhyme; the former moralized to obliterate the remembrance of his treason, and the latter rhymed solely in imitation of Boileau.
Their example has been adopted by Gibbon, who aped Voltaire; but it is the elephant imitating the monkey; his infidelity and occasional obscenity betray his extreme want of morality and judgment, and suit the Gallic tinsel of his monotonous jargon. In the voluminous writings of Gibbon, it is perhaps impossible to find one sentence of pure English; and the foreigner, who wishes to have a correct knowledge of the language, will, it is hoped, never read a page either of Bolingbroke or Gibbon in their English form. Between the Spanish and English there is much more similarity than between the French and English; and this Dictionary will furnish satisfactory evidence, that both nations adopted the same Latin words, with the same significations, into their vernacular dialects.
Several of those words are marked, disused in both countries, some others are printed in capitals, while whole families of words are still used, as indagar , from indagare , to indagate. The physical traits of similarity are as striking as those of the ancient Greeks, whose descendants still appear in the valleys of Granada. The inquisitive reader may perhaps feel disposed to pursue this subject much farther than it is here expedient.
The Saxon race is much less equivocal. As to the prefixes, they are chiefly Latin or Greek prepositions, and have nothing peculiar. Un is of Saxon origin, and is not merely a negative, but means to reverse the action of the verb to which it is prefixed. En in composition becomes em, in, ig, il, im , or ir , according to the letter which immediately follows it.
Many writers confound the prefixes en and in , although the latter properly signifies situation or place, and is also a negative; thus, to in quire, means to seek in or search the place, and to en quire only signifies to. Farther explanations on this head may be found in the grammars of Lowth, Grant, and Allen, and the Analytical Introduction of Booth. The Spanish terminations are easily acquired. It was observed by Mayans, that many Spanish substantives and adjectives are Latin ablative cases singular, or accusatives plural, as ars , arte, artes; prudens , prudente, prudentes. The d, l, n, r, s, x , and z , are the only consonants, which can terminate a word although b, c, d, g, l, m, n, p, r, s, t, x , and z , may end a syllable; c, l, n, r , in a few words admit of being doubled, and also the vowels a, e, i , and o , but more rarely.
The organs of speech render b, p, v , and f , and, c, g, j and q interchangeable in both languages; in English s and z are commutable in verbal terminations. The Latin t is almost always changed in Spanish for c or z , as gratia , gracia, ratio , razon; the Latin mutes are likewise omitted, as scientia , ciencia; in other cases an e is prefixed for the sake of euphony, as species makes especie. The Latin adjectives in bilis obey the same law in Spanish and English, and make ble; au is changed to o , as aurum , oro; i to e , as infirmus , enfermo; u to o , as musca , mosca; ovum , huevo; f is converted into h , as facere , hacer; m into n , as lympha , linfa; Latin infinitives become Spanish by dropping the final e , as ponere , poner, dormire , dormir, stare , estar; some words are also augmented, by that spirit of magnanimity which animates every Spaniard, and which was judiciously observed by Smith in his Theory of Moral Sentiments; as from spes comes esperanza, cor , corazon; and, as a proof of their delicacy and temperance, comedere is reduced to comer.
These literal mutations will be evident to the classical reader, and to others any further notice of them would be useless. It remains to say something of the great and numerous additions to the volumes now submitted to the public. Above ten whole sheets have been added to the recent editions of this Dictionary, which, with the additional matter gained by compressing the definitions so as to have few short lines, and a greater length of page, as well as other alterations in the mode of printing, augment the contents to nearly twenty sheets more than the preceding editions. In the Spanish-English, there are above entirely new articles introduced; in the English-Spanish above 12, Besides these additions, in both parts, it will be found that very few of the old definitions have been allowed to pass, without either correction or the addition of many new and appropriate synonyms, several thousand of which are not to be found in any Spanish or English dictionary yet published, or indeed in any dictionary of two languages, which has fallen under the observation of the writer.
In some words the reader will observe definitions in both parts diametrically opposite to what are given in almost all other dictionaries; he is not therefore to conclude that they are wrong, but to examine facts, when he may perhaps discover their general accuracy, and that they are derived from diligent research.
It rarely happens, as in the present case, that compilers of dictionaries are equally well acquainted with words and with things: it is the want of the latter, and more arduous kind of knowledge, which occasions the defectiveness of all dictionaries. In this edition, it is believed, more terms of science, arts, manufactures, and commerce, have been introduced than were ever before attempted in a dictionary of two languages, and even more than exist in any English dictionary extant. Important political circumstances have recently happily combined to promote an extended intercourse between England and Spain—both European and American.
The prejudices of religion, which had hitherto interdicted the dissemination of our literature, are rapidly vanishing before the edicts of a more. That this copious Dictionary of the languages of these countries may be the medium of facilitating the communication, and of promoting the best interests of each, is not only the earnest desire, but is also the certain anticipation, of the Editors.
Lastly, the Editors regret, from particular circumstances, they are not permitted to return publicly their thanks to many Spanish and other gentlemen, who have generously assisted their researches, either by the loan of books, or by written communications.

Or yes, I owe a lot to my family, to all the people who follow me, who buy my books, who go to my workshops, who read my nonsense, who get angry and rejoice with me. It's a job I've been doing for many, many years, long before "my audience" even had the place to comment on my work almost no one commented on a blog, haha.
And I would continue doing it even if I did not have an audience. Being part of the public does not give them any kind of special power over my work or my life decisions. The problem with that beautiful phrase that fills us with pride of freedom and democracy is that, when we believe that we have the right to have an opinion on anything, we also think that we do not need to justify that opinion.
And a lot. And another thing is to think that our opinion, just because it is ours, is valid or true. The truth about something is not a matter of opinion hello, flat earth believers. And if it also comes loaded with violence and obvious intentions of hurting me or making my day a little bitter, I'm going to explode.
My life is not Instagram. Instagram is just a window to my life, a small reflection of what I do, and it seems to me that receiving insults and unjustified attacks for what I'm supposed to do with my job or fail to do is too high of a price. We accept to play this social networks game knowing that it is impossible to please everyone. Some justified. Others, not so much, almost a gut thing. In both cases I prefer no to follow those people. I think is the healthy way to behave. Obviously, I'm not the parameter. Nobody is. But just as anyone can look through my IG window, I can close the window to anyone who comes to throw stones at me.
I want to think that sometimes we become the scapegoat of these strange characters. That one day she saw me go through her virtual street, and something that I said or that I showed woke up her fury and she spat at me with everything she had. But neither is it my fault or my responsibility… well, it is my responsibility as a citizen to do everything I can to make things better, but under no circumstances is it my obligation to justify my actions to a random person.
Even though my pride hurts. I had to block her. I like to fight, I love a nice and intelligent discussion like the neighbor next door…more if I know that the other person is far from the truth and I have strong evidence, but I think that, in these circumstances, closing the window is the healthiest thing to do.

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel which can either be used as an alternative or extender to petroleum diesel and has tremendous environmental benefits. The production of energy crops will enable countries to produce clean renewable fuel i. This Plan mainly focuses on to developing Jatropha, oil extraction and biodiesel production from Jatropha oil in Mexico. As part of strategic response to the global economic and financial meltdown; crashing crude oil revenues and effort to diversify internal and external revenue sources and industrial base of the Mexico economy, there has been considerable interest focused on the development of domestic biodiesel industry in Mexico.
Reasons for growing interest in biodiesel include its potential for reducing noxious emissions, potential contributions to rural economic development and as an additional demand center for agricultural commodities. The Project aims at. In order to achieve this objective the strategies numbered are the fostering of a more efficient use of energy as well as a greater reliance on renewable sources of energy, and particularly on biofuels, in order to satisfy the energy demands in the country An Aero Mexico plane made an important flight from Mexico City to Madrid in The flight wasn't notable for who was inside the cabin, but for what was inside the fuel tank: it was the world's first transatlantic commercial flight using biofuel.
Mexico is known for its oil production, but it could be its less obvious flats of arid and marginal land that will be the future of Mexico's energy resources. The country has quietly positioned itself to become a potential leader in biofuel production as scientists develop a second generation of fuels derived from sources that don't compete for arable land or with food.
Jatropha-based biofuels are being increasingly used in Mexico. Some biofuels, such as ethanol derived from corn and sugar, can indirectly raise the prices of staple foods in many places, along with raising ethical issues. In , Mexico, along with 14 other member countries of the International Civil Aviation Organization, committed to developing new strategies for second-generation biofuels that would not affect food production. The state Chiapas began cultivating Jatropha as state already uses a Jatropha biofuel mix on its buses and trucks.
When the standards for biofuel use in commercial flights were approved July 1, Mexico was ready to make the domestic Interjet and international AeroMexico flights a possibility. Mexico has several things in its favor to become a leader in biofuels. It has plenty of land not being used for food, it has a high demand for energy, and it is located next door to the energy-hungry United States. Mexico has made the very important first step to be in a very privileged place. Sugar-based ethanol produces even less emissions, but it needs arable land for cultivation. Mexico, the native home of Jatropha plants, stands to benefit if such a Biofuel industry take off.
Jatropha trees absorb CO2 as they grow; leaving the positive environmental impact. It grows rapidly from cuttings and seeds, and has a productive lifespan of more than forty years. Since Jatropha needs only minimal water and nutrients it can produce competitive harvests on marginal and degraded land. It can also be planted with crops with higher water and nutrient requirements. Rather than compete with food crops for scarce arable land, Jatropha can be intercropped with coconut, vanilla, medicinal plants and various fruits and vegetables, giving farmers the opportunity to earn additional income.
Processing Jatropha seeds into biodiesel produces valuable by-products. Residual seedcake is produced when the seeds are crushed to extract the oil and can be used as organic fertilizer, briquettes for power generation or methane production in anaerobic digesters. Glycerin, which is in demand for use by the cosmetics and pharma industry, is also produced when the oil is converted into Biodiesel. The cultivation of Jatropha can potentially provide jobs and greater incomes for millions of agricultural workers and farmers across the developing world. It will enable developing countries to ensure local supplies of vegetable oil for production of greener fuel and reduce dependence on expensive oil imports.

Translation - Spanish 1. La Jatropha es una de las numerosas plantas que prometen mucho. La Jatropha es una planta con semillas oleaginosas que crece en regiones tropicales y subtropicales y genera grandes rendimientos de aceite vegetal. La Jatropha puede cultivarse en una amplia gama de tipos de tierra, incluyendo tierras marginales y residuales. El cultivo de Jatropha puede potencialmente generar empleos y mayores ingresos para millones de trabajadores de la agricultura y campesinos en un mundo en desarrollo.
Es algo que necesita convertirse urgentemente en una realidad ahora mismo. Jatropha seeds produce high yields of non-edible vegetable oil that can be converted into biodiesel. As Jatropha can be grown on land of lesser agricultural value with lower irrigation requirements than many plants, it is an excellent biodiesel feedstock. Biodiesel from this oil fully comply with the current EN standard. Biodiesel meeting this standard is an approved blend when mixed with mineral diesel.
The Jatropha tree has been selected as the primary energy crop due to the following characteristics: 2. However, it has been observed that better yields of approximately 6. It is expected that that each hectare of Jatropha planted should produce an anticipated yield of approximately tones of seeds per annum allowing for first year plant failure and losses.
It is further assumed that each tone of Jatropha oil is capable of producing approximately 1, liters of Biodiesel correspondingly, each hectare is capable of producing nearly 4, liters of Biodiesel per annum in the fifth year of the project. The survival rate is very high. Furthermore, it requires only mm of annual rainfall, although it grows better in areas of higher annual rainfall. There is already an established commercial market for crude glycerol. In order to maximize its returns from the overall enterprise, the Group currently intends to sell the crude glycerol to third parties.
The report has further been divided into 3 parts namely: 1. The Farming Stage: 2. The Extraction Stage 3. Plantation activities are carried out and the seeds are produced after a gestation period of 2 year. Seed yield stabilizes after five-six years. The yield of the seed per hectare area of production is a very significant factor in determining the final price of biodiesel. The difference in the yield also changes the marginal cost of production, as extraction and transesterification are dependent on the production process stage. This raw oil is then transesterified into bio-diesel in the transesterification stage with the generation of glycerol as a by-product.
The yield of the seed over a defined area determines the capacity of the extraction and transesterification plant to be set up. The extraction unit capacity is based on the amount of seed feedstock introduced into it and the transesterification unit capacity is based on the amount of raw oil fed to it. Thus, the economics based on the long-run marginal cost of the production process depends on the seed yield.
The seed yield, in turn, determines other key variables of production capacity of the extraction and transesterification units and hence determines the fixed and variable costs of the extraction and transesterification stages. Overview Jatropha Farming System 1. Material Planting stock; growing media and plant protection measure 1. The main tasks for which a high intensity of labor is required are: 1. Water logged area should be avoided. Seedlings for out-planting are raised by seeds.
Seeds are sown in poly bags in the suitable month to obtain adequate size and plant vigor in the planting stock. Soil medium in the nursery needs to be sandy loam with sufficient water-holding capacity, adequate porosity, and good drainage. Use of mycorrhiza in seedlings has been suggested. Mycorrhizae are fungal species, which facilitate absorption of nutrients by plants due to increased surface area in the post-planting period.
To raise we shall need 6 nursery spacing in 2 ha each. As such total number of nursery shall be 6 to raise 3 million saplings for plantation in 1, ha Table: 5. The Nursery should be developed in at appropriate place in Plantation sites Manpower Requirement for one Nursery 1 Manager 1 2 Supervisor 2 3 Skilled Labor 10 4 Watchman 1 5 Temporary labor As required The best time to start nursery project is 3 months before on set of mansoon 2. The outline of the nursery is shown below: 3.
Bali Biofuel shall apply best model on the basis of the soil types, rainfall, and other physical and biological attributes i. Models based on site-specific biotic attributes to maximize yield. The company shall adopt planting pattern of 2mx2m as recommended by the consultant. Tale 5. Since the selected location receive rainfall only part of the year and hence proper care shall be taken to develop cost effective irrigation system. The projected plantation cost is given below:- The projected plantation cost with 20 percent mobility is as below:- Table: 5.
The labor and other expenditure shall be 1. Table: 5. Other item of the work: Table: 5. The requirement of agricultural machineries has been assumed as below: Table: 5. Fruit harvesting is one of important things in Jatropha agribusiness. Harvest Criteria Fruit harvesting is done right after the seeds have ripened, which is about 90 days after flower bearing.
Ripe seeds are indicated with dry yellowish brown fruit husk. Another indication is half of the husk open naturally. When the husk opens, it means that the seeds are ripe already. Harvest which is too early carried out is causing oil substance decrease. While too late harvest causes fruits crushed so that the seeds fall at the ground. Harvest Techniques Techniques of harvesting can be done by quaking boughs repeatedly unto till the fruits fall mechanically.
But this way is less effective. The best way is picking up the fruits directly by hand from the boughs. Ripe rate of fruit at one bunch is not the same from one to another. Harvesting which is done fruit-by-fruit is labor intensive. That is why fruit harvesting is commonly carried out per bunch, not per fruit. Fruit and Seed Draining Draining is to be done by putting Jatropha fruit under a shaded shelter or net.
Do not put the fruits directly in the sun because direct sun light has a negative effect to Jatropha seed quality. The fruits are drained until they naturally open. Take the seeds outside from the opened fruits, and clean them. Drain the seeds during 1 day. If the seeds are not dry enough, they will be easily got molded and broken. Seed storing At an average 1 kg of seeds is equivalent to seeds. Storage of the raw material seeds is important for continuous operations. Two options are available bulk storage and bag-storage, the bag-storage is prevailed.
The storehouses should be well ventilated in order to prevent molding and self-ignition. The location plays an important role, as it has a considerable impact on transport and storage costs. Storage at room temperature is most ideal for preservation during one year without loss of quality. However taking into account, that Jatropha seeds do contain very high oil content, it is strongly recommended to avoid storage for a too long period. If possible, the seeds should be processed right after they have been drained. Although not clearly specified, this range in production may be attributable to low and high rainfall areas.
With enhanced technologies and efficient management techniques the company expects the following yield of seeds. Assumption: Plantation starts in based on the prevailing agro climatic condition and management techniques Note: due to application of Good agricultural practices we have not taken any yield for 1st 2 years though there shall be some quantity of seed harvest The harvesting yield has great importance for the economics of the plant. In fact, as it is shown in fig. For instance, mechanical harvesting could significantly reduce harvesting cost.
Agricultural risks Agriculture is always associated with weather risk The client business may be affected by all general risks associated with agricultural production. The risk of fire, drought, or other extreme weather is a factor for all crops and would result in lower crops yields than projected. There is no other major risk that can be predict 9.
These gases are causing irrevocable damage to the climate on this planet. The Kyoto protocol has been set up to reduce the emission of these harmful gases and to promote renewable energy usage. The value of these Carbon Credits is market driven and is sharply rising, thus making an effort to reduce emission becomes increasingly economically attractive.
The Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere when biofuel is burned is recycled by growing plants, which are later processed into fuel. Thus, the CO2 emission of Jatropha oil can be assumed almost zero. For this reason, a project which aims to exploit the potential of Jatropha Curcus as energy crop owns all requisites to be eligible within the Clean Development Mechanism. Emission credits Table: 6.
La tasa de supervivencia es muy alta. Ya existe un mercado comercial establecido para el glicerol crudo. La etapa de agricultura. Panorama general del sistema de cultivo de la Jatropha 1. Las principales tareas para las que se requiere este tipo de mano de obra son: 1. Mantenimiento de la tierra. Cosecha de semillas. Manejo de semillas. Almacenamiento de semillas. Figura 5. Tabla 5. Otras partidas del trabajo: Tabla 5. Para el requerimiento de maquinaria se asume lo siguiente: Tabla 5.
Pero esta manera de hacerlo es menos eficaz. La mejor manera es tomar los frutos de las ramas directamente con la mano. La cosecha que se hace fruto por fruto implica un trabajo intenso. No ponga los frutos directamente bajo el sol porque la luz solar directa tiene un efecto negativo en la calidad de las semillas de la Jatropha. Los frutos son desecados hasta que se abren de manera natural. No existe otro riesgo importante que se pueda predecir.
The glycerol, which is a by-product of bio diesel production process, has considerable demand in the domestic as well as export market. In view of above, world-class technology has been envisaged to meet the quality standards. There are very few world class technology providers like Energia, Austrian, Biodiesel International, Austria and Lurgi AG, Germany is engaged in research and development of innovative biodiesel technology and Lurgi is one of such company, with established technology and having supplied plant 1.
Further, the prices of fuel are going up day by day. Many countries are working on this aspect of alternative fuel and have received very good results of producing bio-Diesel from different plants including Jatropha, Neem, palm steering oil, many other non-edible oils. The biodiesel industry is of international importance in view of the increased petroleum consumption and rise in prices of crude oil. This project would provide alternative to petroleum fuels, resulting in saving of foreign exchange, which can be used for other development activities.
This project will also generate employment opportunities and income generation especially for the rural sector apart from soil up gradation and preservation of Ecological Environment and addressing the Global concerns for increasing Green House Gases GHG Emissions.
Benefits of biodiesel Biodiesel qualifies as a renewable fuel and it is non-toxic and biodegradable. The main benefits of biodiesel include reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, improved air quality, reduced reliance on fossil fuels and regional benefits of employment. It could also make the best possible use of feedstocks that are considered waste, such as cooking oil and trap grease. Figure 7.
The amount of raw oil content in the seed again depends on the quality of the seed. The output of the raw oil SVO from the extraction unit is a key determining factor for deciding the capacity of the transesterification unit. The marginal cost of the extraction stage is based on the capacity of the extraction plant, which, in turn, is based on the seed yield. Different plant capacities have different fixed and variable costs, which ultimately affect the final marginal cost-based pricing of bio-diesel.
The other important factor on which the pricing of bio-diesel depends is the extraction efficiency, which raises the yield of raw oil and reduces the long-run marginal cost of bio-diesel production. De-oiled cake is the by-product of the extraction stage, which can be sold at a price. The larger the sale price of de-oiled cake, the greater can be its effect on reducing the net marginal cost of Biodiesel.
Raw oil extraction can be improved using better extraction techniques, which can enhance the economics of bio-diesel production process. Sustained demand of de-oiled cake is important for reducing the net cost of bio-diesel production. Any vegetable oil or animal fat is made of components, called fatty acids, have different properties that can be characterized by the number of hydrogen and carbon atoms and the way these atoms are bonded together.
Table shows the melting point, boiling point, and names of the most common fatty acids. It is important to note that vegetables oils are usually composed of several fatty acids. This means that the properties of oil will be a mixture of the properties of the fatty acids it contains. It follows that the biodiesel made from the oil will also exhibit a mixture of these properties.
The final stage of bio-diesel production is the transesterification stage in which raw oil is transesterified to bio-diesel, which is methyl or ethyl ester based on whether methanol or ethanol is used in the production process. The capacity of the transesterification plant is dependent on the amount of raw oil that has to be transesterified into bio-diesel.
The capital cost of the transesterification plant depends on its capacity. This affects the economics of the bio-diesel production process differently. Revenues generated from by-products like glycerol can reduce the net marginal cost of bio-diesel production. However, as in the case of de-oiled cake, sustained demand for the by-product glycerol in industries like soap and pharmaceutical is very important for reducing the net marginal cost of production.
The market price and the sale price of these by-products are a determining factor for the final price of bio-diesel. A drop in the price of these by-products through supply side push can increase the net marginal cost, thereby affecting the viability of bio-diesel production. After the extraction of oil from Jatropha seeds as explained in preceding section, the oil is being processed to biodiesel in the second stage.
This is the reaction of a triglyceride major constituent of Jatropha Oil with an alcohol in this case methanol , in the presence of the Potassium or Sodium Hydroxide acting as a Catalyst, to form a fatty acid methyl ester FAME and glycerol. The characteristics of the triglycerides are determined by the nature of these acids, which in turn affect the properties of the Biodiesel produced. To ensure the consistency of the products therefore, a consistent feedstock is essential.
The figure below outlines the chemical process for the methyl ester biodiesel produced in the proposed plant. The reaction is reversible, with the slightly endothermic forward reaction. As a result a significant temperature rise would not shift the dynamic equilibrium significantly. Instead the methanol reagent is added in excess to the reaction, to drive the equilibrium to the right, increasing the rate of the forward reaction. From this stage, product streams of a mixture of partially esterified oil, methanol and KOH; and a mixture of Glycerine and Soap result.
From this stage, the glycerine and soap produced joins the stream from the first stage. The Methyl Ester product moves onto the washing stage. This acts to remove any remaining soap, glycerine or catalyst that remains in the stream. The waste stream undergoes a process of demethanolisation and water removal to leave crude glycerine, and small quantities of triglycerides and catalyst.
The methanol and water removed are separated and recycled into the transesterification and washing stages respectively. The methanol and water are recycled, resulting in the product of purified Methyl Ester, Biodiesel. En la Figura 7. Figura 7. De nuevo, la cantidad de contenido de aceite crudo en la semilla depende de la calidad de la semilla. Por lo tanto, para garantizar la consistencia de los productos, es esencial disponer de materias primas consistentes.
Also the gums and other impurities should be removed from the oil for better product yield and quality. Therefore, it is essential that oil should be pre-treated to meet above limit. The pre-treatment of the oil is carried out in the preparatory section. Bleaching is carried out to lighten the colour of the oil.
Following sections are used for production of biodiesel from the oil. The oils have impurities which interfere with the process of trans-esterification and must be removed before the process in a Preparatory step. Then soap stock formed due to chemical reaction is allowed to settle at the bottom of the neutralizer from where it is taken out into soap pan, as soap will complicate the separation process.
The free fatty acids are distilled out and condensed separately for further conversion to Methyl-ester. Bleaching Neutralized oil is drawn into the second vessel called bleacher where colour of oil is removed by bleaching process with aid of chemicals such as carbon black and bleaching earth. Stirring is also continued. Bleaching process is done under vacuum. Bleached oil then goes to the filter press where bleaching earth and chemicals are separated.
The refined oil if meeting the following standards shall be introduced to the transesterification section. FFA less than0. Tranesterification Section The transesterification process flow chosen is similar to a cross flow. The feedstock and the intermediate product, respectively, flow successively through the two mixer-settler units, both units being supplied with methanol and catalyst in parallel. The reactors are of multi-stage design, comprising various reaction chambers in order to achieve maximum conversion efficiency to methyl ester. The settlers allow phase separation to reach virtually the limit of solubility.
This is of great benefit for the downstream processing of the phases rich in ester and glycerin. This process configuration is supported by a defined temperature profile adjusted along the mixer-settler arrangement. The ester-rich phase still contains methanol, glycerin, small amounts of catalyst, soaps and high boiling components. In order to remove the water-soluble substances, the ester phase is washed.
To avoid the formation of emulsions, any soap that may be present is previously split by adding acid. The washed ester still contains some water, being vacuum-dried in a dryer circuit to adjust the tolerable water content. The high-glycerin phase is collected in a pump tank together with the wash water because of its methanol and glycerin contents. In this process, the catalyst decomposes into caustic soda solution and methanol in the presence of water. The catalyst in liquid form is added to the methanol by means of metering pumps. As the catalyst is sensitive to water, the catalyst pump tank may be protected with a nitrogen layer.
Diluted hydrochloric acid is prepared automatically and can be added to the methyl ester to be washed. All gases vented off from the mixer-settlers, from the catalyst pump tank and the methanol pump tank are routed to a condenser where they are partly condensed and returned to the process in liquid form.
The methanol containing phases e. By means of a pump, the dried methyl ester is continuously delivered to the methyl ester storage tank provided by customer. The free fatty acids present in vegetable oils are eliminated in the preparatory section mentioned above.
The high-free-fatty acid feedstock is mixed with alcohol and acid in a separate reactor, converting all free fatty acids into methyl esters. The evaporator system has two re-circulating evaporation circuits stages maintained under vacuum; each re-circulating evaporation circuit is composed of a heat exchanger and evaporator section. The vapors from the last evaporator stage are precipitated in a condenser.
The concentrated glycerol solution is transferred to a storage tank for storage and sale. This operation is only required if the project is intent on capturing this additional value at the expense of significantly higher capital and operating costs. Base catalyzed transesterification with refined oils 2. Base catalyzed transesterification with low fatty acid greases and fats 3. Acid esterification followed by transesterification of low or high FFA free fatty acid fats and oils Many other processes are being developed, which include the following.
Some companies offer pre-made turn-key plants, some will custom build a turn-key plant to suit specific customer needs, while others offer engineering services for a locally built, custom plant. All options have advantages and disadvantages. Most of the high-tech biodiesel plant manufacturing companies offer plants that are economically feasible for centralized, large-scale production using a continuous process. In order to reach these economies of scale, these plants operate mostly on virgin oils. Decision Making Criteria and Parameters A variety of process options were investigated and evaluated with respect to the volumes and characteristics of feedstock, products and by-products, capital and operating costs, production flexibility, and the ability to meet required finished product specifications on a consistent and reliable basis.
This included an analysis of batch vs. The selection of appropriate technology for production of bio-diesel requires careful selection of processing steps, catalysts, and downstream process integration. The quality of vegetable oils, particularly FFA and moisture content, plays an important role in identifying the technology suitable for a particular situation. To reduce the cost of bio-diesel production, value-addition options for by-products such as oil cake and glycerine are also being researched. Important factors to be considered for selection of appropriate technology to produce bio-diesel include the following.
The proposed Jatropha plantation shall be completed in and the first exploitable harvest shall be available in Therefore, following observations are very essential to be followed: 1. With own Jatropha feed stock, the company shall start the production in first oil extraction and biodiesel plant of 10 tpd capacity in The plant either shall be run on reduced capacity utilization in since seed available for oil extraction shall not be sufficient to run for days in a year.
It is recommended that company may procure feedstock from the market to use both the plants on full capacity. After this the company feedstock shall be sufficient to run both the plants. Since the production of feed stock shall be increased every year it shall be appropriate to install two number of biodiesel plants in a phase manner of 5 tpd capacity. Equipment order will be possible after negotiations with producers of different parts and completing installation plan. Quantity of agricultural tools needed was estimated for a farm with total arable area 1, ha.
Site preparation includes mainly construction works: fence, building, roof repair, building bases for equipment and storage capacities, installation storage reservoirs, and energy supply and fire detection equipment.

This will be done by subcontractor. We can start processing of oil right after site preparation, because this does not require complicated technology. So, installation of oil processing equipment oil presses, filters, cisterns and offering oil processing services can be started at the beginning of the year. Experience in the rapidly growing biodiesel market in Europe shows that the legally demanded level of quality EN is often not achieved due to poor process technology and inadequate production management. As such the quality assurance for biodiesel is very essential since off specification biodiesel shall not only damage the engine parts but also shall be hard to be sold.
Cetane No. Sulphated Ash ISO 0. Specific Gravity The specific gravity is a relative measure of the density of a substance. The specific gravity of conventional No. Figure given below shows a hydrometer for measuring specific gravity. Other methods are also in common us Hydrometer for measuring specific gravity Kinematic Viscosity To define kinematic viscosity it is useful to begin with the definition of viscosity. We intuitively understand viscosity as evidenced by the fact that we know, for example, honey is more viscous than water.
There is a hydrodynamic definition of viscosity as well. Technically it is the ratio of the shear stress to the shear rate for a fluid. The test is usually conducted by measuring the time required for a volume of liquid to flow under gravity through a calibrated glass capillary tube. The kinematic viscosity is then equal to the product of this time and a calibration constant for the tube.
Biodiesel is more viscous than No. Flash Point A key property determining the flammability of a fuel is the flash point. The flash point is the lowest temperature at which an applied ignition source will cause the vapors of a sample to ignite. Therefore, it is a measure of the tendency of a sample to form flammable mixture with air. The flash point is determined by heating a sample of the fuel in a stirred container and passing a flame over the surface of the liquid.

If the temperature is at or above the flash point, the vapor will ignite and an easily detectable flash can be observed. Figure below shows the test cup for the apparatus. The cup is filled with fuel and heated with an external heater. The agitator ensures that the fuel temperature is uniform. A small open flame is maintained from an external supply. Periodically, the stirrer is stopped and the flame is pivoted down to an opening in the top of the cup to see if the fuel vapors will ignite.
The ignition source is shown Figure below.
