The 6th Semester students of Diploma Mechanical Engg Dept under the guidance of Shri.Ganesh.R.Chitnis, HOD of Mechanical Dept R.N.Shetty Polytechnic, Belagavi have deviseda new technique of extracting Bio-Diesel from the WASTE DECAYED & ROTTEN COCONUTS under the technical guidance of Dr.C.C.Gavimath, VTU & actually extracted the Bio –Diesel using the chemicals like Methanol & Sodium Sulphate.2 001

The Bi-Products namely oil cakes & Glycerine are used for Fertilizers & Cosmetics industries. This Bio-Diesel is eco friendly, pollution free, having more efficiency & much more cheaper (Approximately Rs.34/- per litre) when compared to petroleum products. This can be used in any diesel Engine, even it can be used for generating the electricity economically.

They have also designed the truck body which can dump & tilt the load on all the three sides. Mr.Riyaz.D.Maskewale, Mr. Manjunath Udameeshi, Mr. Milton Carvalho & Team have taken keen interest to complete the project successfully.

  1. Biomass is converted into liquid fuel using chemical, thermal or biological processes, as a renewable alternative to using fossil fuels in transport. World’s leading companies are producing first-generation biofuels while also developing the next generation.

    Numerous studies have confirmed that the use of biofuels is the most efficient existing solution for reducing CO2 emissions in the transport sector. This is underscored by regulations in Europe and the United States, which are gradually requiring higher proportions to be mixed with gasoline and diesel. Biofuels are also an indigenous form of energy that promotes rural development. But the future is more promising still. Second generation biofuels, which are capable of transforming cellulose biomass into bioethanol and do not come into conflict with food crops, are almost a reality its a great technological development.

  2. Hello, Can i get the contact details of Prof. Ganesh R. Chitnis. I am interested in this project.My contact number is 9990259165.
