What it market value per liter? Acc to u it profitable or not ?
Dear sir, Upto my knowledge the present market value of Ben oil ( drumstick seed oil ) is around few thousands per kilo.please note that my intention is only that it is not economical to convert it to diesel . g.p.rao,farmer
Predominantly Moringa oil is used in cosmetics and as lubricant for finer machinery.
But research articles off late talk a lot on its usage better in comparison to jatropha in manufacturing bio diesel.
Viable or not, need to first understand the costing involved to produce such bio diesel.
On a curious case, the calorific value of diesel is around 40K where as of moringa oil is just 800 odd. How do we combust such low calorific value material? I wonder.
