Economic Costs of Converting Crude Sunflower Oil to Methyl Esters

This report is based on research conducted under an Interdisciplinary State Project, ND1439 - Sunflower Oil as an Engine Fuel, with the Departments of Agricultural Economics and Agricultural Engineering cooperating. Previous economic and engineering research directed at small-scale extraction systems, costs, and performance evaluations of sunflower oil-diesel blends led to further investigations covering methyl ester processing, performance, and costs. This report is a continuation of that research effort in evaluating the economic costs in producing methyl ester as an alternative or substitute fuel derived from vegetable oils.
