Use of rapeseed straight vegetable oil as fuel produced in small-scale exploitations
Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter presents a method to produce rapeseed and process it to obtain rapeseed oil and rapeseed cake meal from a small-scale point of view. It also shows how rapeseed oil can be used as fuel in diesel engines for agriculture self-consumption. A production, processing and use-as-fuel model for rapeseed oil is also presented, analysing environmentally and economically the use of rapeseed oil as fuel compared to other agricultural production alternatives. The results are evaluated for dry Mediterranean area conditions.

Small-scale production of straight vegetable oil from rapeseed and its use as biofuel in the Spanish territory Baquero Armans, Grau; Esteban Dalmau, Bernat; Rius Carrasco, Antoni; Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Puig, Rita (Elsevier, 2010-01)Biofuels nowadays are an important topic of study. The most significant point is the availability of bioethanol or biodiesel and their production from different raw materials. It is already known that large-scale production ...
An evaluation of the life cycle cost of rapeseed oil as a straight vegetable oil fuel to replace petroleum diesel in agriculture Baquero Armans, Grau; Esteban Dalmau, Bernat; Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Rius Carrasco, Antoni; Puig, Rita (Elsevier, 2011-08)The use of straight vegetable oil (SVO) as biofuel has been recognized as a valid substitute of diesel fuel in the agricultural sector under specific circumstances. Its direct use reduces most of the chemical processes ...
Environmental life cycle assessment of rapeseed straight vegetable oil as self-supply agricultural biofuel Baquero Armans, Grau; Esteban Dalmau, Bernat; Puig, Rita; Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Rius Carrasco, Antoni (Elsevier, 2013-02)Biofuels are nowadays considered a questionable environmental alternative to fossil fuels. In that context, this work analyses the environmental impacts when introducing rapeseed on the traditional and current wheat and ...
