Keywords: Renewable energy; Pyrolysis oil; fixed bed; mustard de-oiled cake.



Abstract: A fixed bed pyrolysis has been designed and fabricated for obtaining liquid fuel from mustard de-oiled cake. Thermal pyrolysis of mustard de-oiled cake were carried out in a semi batch reactor made up of stainless steel at temperature range from 4500C to 6000C and at a rate of 150C /min to produce bio-fuel. The maximum yield of oil was 51% on wt. % basis for mustard de-oiled cake, it was obtained at a temperature of 6000C with a less completion time. The fuel analysis of oil reveals that this pyrolytic oil can be used as fuel.
