We are proud to announce that BRTeam is among the sponsors of the prestigious ETEC 2015; probably the most significant national event in the field of energy.

 

 

The Fourth Edition ofEmerging Trends in Energy Conservation – ETEC 2015 international conference will be held in Tehran University, on 18th and 19th of February 2015 in association with many universities, private companies ,and government agencies of the region.

The main objectives of this conference is to introduce estate of the art in energy engineering and conservation in certain fields such as:

  • Oil,Gas & Petrochemicals
  • Power Utilities
  • Construction and Building materials
  • Heavy industries (Steel,Cement,Others)
  • Car manufacturing

 

The conference also highlights the growing need for alternative energies in particular biomass-derived energy carriers i.e. second generation biofuels.

The organizers hope to assist prominent industry managers, high level government policy makers and specialized academics to come together and update their knowledge and understanding regarding energy conservation issues.

All BRTeam members are cordially invited to visit BRTeam`s booth during the event. BRTeam`s Bio/reactor Group in collaboration with BRTeam`s Engineering Unit and BRTeam`s SGP/GEF/UNDP-sponsored extension branch; Extension Group of Environmentalists (EGE) will be actively present at the venue of the conference.

BiodieselAnalyzer©: A Software Best Practices At Your Fingertips

BiodieselAnalyzer©: Your Biodiesel Analyses Just A Few Clicks Away!

The procedures  used  to experimentally  determine  the  quality  parameters  of  biodiesel  are  lengthy  and  expensive. In some cases, performing some required tests are impossible for an insufficient amount of oil is available. This is especially true in case of algal biodiesel.

Here we report on a software package, BiodieselAnalyzer© Ver. 1.1 and 1.2, capable of bioprospecting 16 different quality properties of a prospective biodiesel by fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) profiling. More specifically, the only data required to perform the analyses are the FAME profile of the oil feedstock used in making biodiesel. Both the Online and Offline versions of the BiodieselAnalyzer© are intended for the Windows platform and are publically available at http://www.brteam.ir/biodieselanalyzer.

The different biodiesel properties one will be able to investigate using BiodieselAnalyzer© include Unsaturation Level (including Saturated and Unsaturated Fatty Acids, Degree of Unsaturation), Cetan Number, Cold Flow Properties (including Cloud Point, Pour Point and Cold Filter Plugging Point), Oxidation Stability (including Allylic and Bis-Allylic Position Equivalents and Oxidation Stability), Higher Heating Value, Kinematic Viscosity and Density.

 

BiodieselAnalyzer© was first introduced in Biofuel Research Journal:

Talebi, Ahmad Farhad, Meisam Tabatabaei, and Yusuf Chisti. "BiodieselAnalyzer©: a user-friendly software for predicting the properties of prospective biodiesel" Biofuel Research Journal 1.2 (2014): 55-57.

 

And has been used by scholars from all around the world. Here are just examples of scholarly works in which BiodieselAnalyzer© Ver. 1 has been used to perform Biodiesel analyses:

1-      Carvalho, Ana KF, et al. "Biosynthesis, characterization and enzymatic transesterification of single cell oil of Mucor circinelloides–A sustainable pathway for biofuel production" Bioresource Technology (2015). doi:10.1016/j.biortech.2014.12.110

2-      Patidar, Shailesh Kumar, et al. "Potential of  Monoraphidium minutum for carbon sequestration and lipid production in response to varying growth mode" Bioresource technology 172 (2014): 32-40. doi:10.1016/j.biortech.2014.08.070

(Pleasure ensure that Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is already installed on your computer)

 

 

BiodieselAnalyzer© Version 1.2 (Online App) (released on January 12, 2015)

The online version consists of a spreadsheet where one can key in the GC data (fatty acids profile (%) of an oil sample). The online version is available on http://www.brteam.ir/analysis/acme/ and it is compatible with Mozilla FireFox or Google Chrome only.

The online version of  the BiodieselAnalyzer© is very user-friendly. One can simply cut/copy data from other programs for example Word and Excel and paste them into the BiodieselAnalyzer spreadsheet. Then, click on the 'ANALYZE MY DATA' tab and you will be navigated to the results page where different biodiesel properties have been predicted.
