Niger seeds (Guizotia abyssinica Cass.) as a biodiesel source in India

Vibhuti Uddey and Kumud Sandya
The need to produce alternative fuels is a rapid decline in the common reserves of petroleum fossils and concerns about economic and environmental protection from pollution. The use of biodiesel in vegetable oils as an alternative is a worldwide phenomenon. The current study is to consider Niger seed oil as a potential agricultural food as a separate source of transport fuel and other energy needs. Niger seeds are an oilseed seed produced mainly in Ethiopia, India, Myanmar and Nepal and are being tested in the U.S.A. and European countries. It contains 85% poly unsaturated fatty acid mainly comprising linoleic and oleic acid. Its seeds contain 37 to 43% oil. Niger oil is used in food, paint, soap, perfume, and lighting and as a pump oil to raise water flowing in rural and tribal areas. The purpose of this paper is to learn about the importance and growth of Niger in India and to compare the physicochemical properties of Soybean ME and Sunflower ME which are widely used as other fuels in the US and other countries.
