Synthesis of green fuel additive from waste bio-glycerol

January 31, 2011

Bio-glycerol is considered as high boiling polar triol and immiscible with fossil fuel 
fractions due to which it is transformed into its respective ketals and acetals which help to 
improve the quality of diesel emitting less amount of aldehydes and carbon monoxide. 
Solketal visual appearance is transparent and it is odorless organic liquid used as fuel 
additive for diesel to improve its cold flow properties. Condensation of bio-glycerol with bio-
acetone in presence of beta zeolite has been done for synthesising solketal.
