Abstract

The new drop-in fuels technologies stream deals with renewable fuels that can be blended with diesel or gasoline meeting current standards and being used in engines without major design modifications. In the last years, the crop of Jatropha (Jatropha curcas L.) has been introduced in the African countries like Tanzania, Zambia and South Africa, among others. The aim of this research is to determine the energy potential of Jatropha for biodiesel production in Angola, with a special focus on the reduction of current consumption of fossil fuels in energetically isolated farms.
