Abstract :

In this study Nanofiltration polyamide spiral wound membrane module were used separately to refine crude biodiesel containing glycerol and unreacted oil. The polyamide nanofiltration membrane module was operated at permissible range of pressure. The permeate was collected and analyzed for composition using GC and physical parameters such as density and kinematic viscosity, calorific value and flash point are investigated using standard testing procedures. The quality of biodiesel obtained through nanofiltration membrane module is compatible with diesel and meet all requirements as compared to international commercial grade biodiesel.
