Oxidative and Storage Stability of Biodiesel Made from Rapeseed Oil

V. Kampars & R. Kampare
As an environmentally compatible and cost­effective alternative to conventional diesel, biodiesel has markedly increased its share in the fuel market. Inability to predict its deterioration rate and shelf life from quality characteristics of EN14214 standard can lead to performance problems in all types of diesel fuel equipment. The objectives of this study are to determine the oxidative stability of biodiesel samples by the Rancimat method and find some relationship between oxidative stability and shelf life...
