Biodiesel has become beguiling nowadays for it is environmental benefits and it seems an opposite alternative fuel for future. In the current study, the biodiesel was produced from Jatropha seed oil using sulphated zirconia as catalyst. The catalyst was characterized using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC),...

Depletion of the fossil fuel as well as it environmental problems have attracted the attention of researchers recently, in the process to find the sustainable alternatives. Biodiesel emerges as one of the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly options in recent times to fulfill the future energy needs. In the current research, the optim...

In this work, biodiesel was produced from castor oil using CaO obtained from snail shell as a catalyst. The castor oil was extracted using soxhlet extraction method and pretreated in order to upgrade it physicochemical properties for efficient transesterification reaction. The catalyst used was prepared from snail shell using the hydrothermal metho...

Mine water geothermal energy could provide sustainable heating, cooling and storage to assist in the decarbonisation of heat and achieving Net Zero carbon emissions. However, mined environments are highly complex and we currently lack the understanding to confidently enable a widespread, cost-effective deployment of the technology. Extensive and re...

Lubricating oil producers are shifting attention toward the use of renewable and biodegradable energy sources for the production of lubricating oils. This is necessitated by the depleting mineral based energy sources and the negative impact of continuous usage of engine oils from fossil sources. Biomass sources are cheap, environmentally friendly,...

Biodiesel which is a biodegradable, nontoxic and ecofriendly fuel was produced from Tropical Almond seed oil. The almond oil was extracted using n-hexane and then transesterified using CaO catalyst derived from snail shell into biodiesel. The catalyst was calcined and characterized using Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Fourier Transform-Infr...

Addition of additives or blending of conventional diesel with biodiesel improve the cetane number and minimize emission of greenhouse gases. In this study, the biodiesel was produced from refined castor seed oil using refluxed calcined snail shell (CaO) as the catalyst. The refluxed calcined snail shell catalyst was prepared by hydrothermal method....

In recent years research on biodiesel production from non-edible seed oil is receiving more attention to prevent food vs biofuels problems such as starvation in developing countries. Castor seed oil is potential non-edible biodiesel feedstock, but it has high viscosity and high acid value which are among the undesired factors in biodiesel productio...

Biodiesel from non-edible oil emerges as one of the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly options in recent times to fulfill the sustainable future energy needs. Hence, there is a need to produce biodiesel on an industrial scale. In designing a reactor, for a large scale production, the thermodynamic, kinetics and optimization paramete...

An 8-year old male, neutered Nigerian indigenous dog was presented to the Usmanu Danfodiyo University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Sokoto because of chronic intermittent vomiting, off feed and progressive wasting. Physical examination of the abdomen revealed hard mass in the abdominal cavity. Survey abdominal radiography (lateral view) revealed im...
