Book Description:

The Nat. Renewable Energy Lab. (NREL) provided technical assistance to the Philippines in the area of biodiesel property testing and utilization. Three fuel samples were provided to NREL from the Philippines. These fuel samples were an unadditized diesel fuel, an additized diesel fuel, and a coconut derived biodiesel (coconut methylester or CME) fuel. Results from the fuel property testing show that the unadditized diesel fuel, the additized diesel fuel, and the CME samples met the Philippine Nat. Standards for diesel fuel quality. The 1% and 5% blends of CME in the diesel fuels also met the current Philippine Nat. Standard for diesel fuel quality. The 5% blend of CME in diesel fuel did increase the cetane number slightly for each blend. Illus.
