B-100 biodiesel

Biodiesel can be blended and used in many different concentrations. The most common are B5 (up to 5% biodiesel) and B20 (6% to 20% biodiesel). B100 (pure biodiesel) is typically used as a blendstock to produce lower blends and is rarely used as a transportation fuel.

Description

B100 refers 100% biodiesel and 0% diesel fuel.biodiesel  is very good solvent.B100 freezes at much higher temperature then conventional Diesel.Biodiesel  is not compatible with certain hoses and gaskets.Biodiesel  is not compatible with certain metals and plastics.

B-100 high level blends

B100 and other high-level biodiesel blends are less common than B20 and lower blends due to a lack of regulatory incentives and pricing. Biodiesel-compatible material for certain parts, such as hoses and gaskets, allow B100 to be used in some engines built since. B100 has a solvent effect. The release of these deposits may initially clog filters and require frequent filter replacement in the first few tanks of high-level blends.

properties of biodiesel

The physical and chemical properties such as viscosity, density, flash point, cloud point, cetane number, and acid value etc. affect the biodiesel engine performance and emission. In turn, these properties are derived from the fatty acid composition and the properties of the individual fatty esters in biodiesel.
