Use of pure palm oil as biofuel.

The use of palm oil in a diesel engine requires above all a knowledge of its physicochemical properties.

By comparing them with those of diesel and other vegetable oils, processed or not, we come out of important points to identify the possible difficulties that would encounter a diesel engine running on palm oil. The result is an analysis of five major problems and their possible remedies: the viscosity, flash point, polymerization, chemical reactions and physicochemical reactions.

Various solutions are discussed, both for Europe and especially for Africa.
