Biodiesel Webinar

Theme: Production of Biodiesel from Used Cooking Oil

We delightfully invite all the participants across the world to attend the Webinar on Biodiesel which aims for “Production of Biodiesel from Used Cooking Oil (UCO)’’, to be held during August 11, 2020 at 10:00 AM (UTC +5:30). Our main motto is to unify individuals in the scholarly community and society keen on Biodiesel to deliver their talks on the current trends and significant issues related to research important for the public to be shared. Biodiesel webinar acquires a wide platform for students, Academic Professors, Researchers, Young Researchers, Business Delegates to exchange ideas and knowledge. 


Scientific session


Session 1: Advances in Renewable Chemicals

Sustainable synthetic concoctions are utilized for expanding the utilization of inexhaustible assets as opposed to non-renewable energy sources. Sustainable synthetic concoctions contain all the synthetic concoctions which are created from inexhaustible feedstock, for example, microorganisms, biomass (plant, creature, and marine), and agrarian crude materials. Inexhaustible synthetic concoctions are used in a few applications across various Chemical businesses, for example, in food preparing, lodging, materials, condition, transportation, cleanliness, pharmaceutical, and different applications. Inexhaustible synthetic concoctions are for the most part accessible as ketones, alcohols, natural acids, and bio-polymers.


Session 2Biodiesel

Produced using an inexorably differing blend of assets, for example, reused cooking oil, soybean oil and creature fats, biodiesel is a sustainable, clean-consuming diesel substitution that can be utilized in existing diesel motors without alteration. It is the country's first locally delivered, monetarily accessible progressed biofuel.Fuel-grade biodiesel must be created to severe industry details so as to guarantee appropriate execution. Biodiesel mixes meet determinations for lawful diesel engine fuel (ASTM D7467). Additionally, B100 must meet the ASTM definition for biodiesel itself (ASTM D6751). Crude vegetable oil can't meet these diesel fuel particulars and thusly isn't considered biodiesel.


Session 3Biomass

The term "biomass" means any plant derived organic  matter available on a renewable basis, including dedicated  energy crops and trees, agricultural food and feed crops, agricultural crop wastes and residues, wood wastes and  residues, aquatic plants, animal wastes, municipal wastes, and other waste materials. Handling technologies, collection logistics and infrastructure are important  aspects of the biomass resource supply chain.


Session 4Sustainability:

New land is not required for biodiesel production. Instead, this advanced biofuel uses readily available, diverse resources. And, that’s not all. Biodiesel has several environmental benefits when compared to petroleum-based diesel fuel:

Reduces lifecycle greenhouse gases by 86 %

Lowers particulate matter by 47 %, reduces smog and makes our air healthier to breathe

Reduces hydrocarbon emissions by 67 %

For every unit of fossil energy it takes to produce biodiesel, 3.5 units of renewable energy are returned, the best of any U.S. fuel


Session 5Bioheat

Bioheat fuel is a blend of biodiesel and ultra-low sulfur heating oil. It is a simple choice and a smart solution that results in a better fuel for your home and the environment. Bioheat blends are the future of heating oil and are taking the industry by storm. Dealers today are commonly delivering Bioheat blends from as little as B2 all the way up to even B100. Heating customers should consult their fuel dealer on the benefits of each, and on what type of Bioheat blend is best for their home.


Session 6Bioethanol

Biofuels are liquid or gaseous fuels that are produced from biodegradable fractions of products, remains from agricultural production and forestry, as well as biodegradable fractions of industrial and municipal wastes.

However, ethanol produced from renewable energy sources is one of the most promising biofuels for the future. Although bioethanol fuels can be manufactured using the chemical reaction between ethylene and stream, it is mainly produced through fermentation of sugars derived from crops containing starch, such as corn, wheat, sugar cane, sorghum plants, etc.


Session 7Biofuels

A variety of fuels can be made from biomass resources, including the liquid fuels ethanol, methanol, biodiesel, Fischer-Tropsch diesel, and gaseous fuels such as  hydrogen and methane. Biofuels research and  development is composed of three main areas: producing  the fuels, finding applications and uses of the fuels, and  creating a distribution infrastructure.



Session 8Biorefineries

An emerging concept for the UEMOA to be aware of is biorefineries. A biorefinery involves the co-production of a spectrum of bio-based products (food, feed, materials, chemicals) and energy (fuels, power, heat) from biomass.


Session 9Biochar

Any bioenergy production will lead to a removal of biomass from the land. This potentially leads to soil degradation, with negative effects on soil productivity, habitats, and off-site pollution. Pyrolysis , coupled with organic matter returned through biochar, addresses this dilemma, as about half of the original carbon can be returned to the soil. Biochar is a fine-grained charcoal high in organic carbon and largely resistant to decomposition. 


Market Research
Market report:
The global Biomass Energy market was million US$ in 2018 and is expected to million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of between 2019 and 2025.Over the years to come, biomass will grow within the biopower, biofuels, and bioproduct sectors. The market value of electricity generated from biomass in the U.S. was $45 billion in 2010 and will increase to $53 billion by 2020.  According to the BPA (Biomass Power Association), the biomass industry produces 5 million megawatt-hours of electricity every year, provides 18,000 jobs nationwide, and removes more than 68.8 million tons of forest debris every year.
Future scope:
Usage of biomass will grow within the coming years. The clean electricity generation will be enough for more than 17,000 UAE householders a year and the usage of renewable for electricity generation in UK is increased by 60 per cent and the share of electricity is around 9.7 per cent in 2012 and 15.5 per cent in 2013.
