FiBiod is a project about the utilisation of biofuels for fishing boats in cold climates. Pure Biodiesel is cheaper, safer and less polluting than conventional fuels but it has also a big challenge to solve. In cold climates the viscosity of the bio fuel reaches an unpleasant high value, causing damage to tanks, pipes, pumps and of course the engine. Our task is to find and develop an energy-efficient solution, so fishermen will be able to use biodiesel in low temperatures.
This project takes place at the Novia University in Vaasa by an EPS group of five members from different countries in Europe.
