Of late, bio-diesel projects are coming up. While manufacturing, bio-diesel crude glycerol comes out as by-product. It contains some sodium sulfate. The bio-diesel project also requires steam. Will it be possible to use the by-product glycerol as fuel? If yes, who could be the likely supplier of such burner?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Using glycerol as fuel16 March 2007 at 1:29pmGlycerol can be used as a fuel. However, presence of sodium sulfate will limit its applications, depending on concentration present. Glycerol burner can be provided by vendors supplying waste fuel burners.
