Title Effectiveness of Low Temperature Additives for Biodiesel Blends.
Publication Date Jun 2012
Media Count 29p
Personal Author S. R. Westbrook
Abstract The basis of this focus was the assumption that once the end user has taken ownership of a biodiesel blend, the only realistic option to improve low temperature properties is treatment of the blend with an additive. The test results demonstrated that use of the selected additives could be tailored depending on the low temperature property to be improved. Addition of additive to cold fuel reduces or eliminates the efficacy of the additive.
