Mr. Rebwar Krmanj Abulrahman, who is a Koya University instructor at the Department of Chemical Engineering, publishes his latest article in an international journal.



The idea of the article

Regarding his research article, Mr. Rebwar says “my article is entitled: Effect of Reaction Temperature on the Biodiesel Yield from Waste cooking Oil and chicken fat”.

In addition, he mentions the reason behind choosing his research title and states that “The global demand for energy sources have been significantly increased recently. 

Indeed, several hydrocarbon reservoirs have been depleted in the world. 

Moreover, the using of fossil fuels such as natural gas and crude oil are contributed in global worming phenomenon that emitted several gases such as, carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide to the atmosphere.

 As a result, the researchers are investigating in producing an alternative friendly fuel that meet the global environmental legislation for example, bio-fuel, solar and wind energy.

 Indeed, biodiesel may consider one of the most obvious alternative sustainable fuels that may be produced from vegetable oil and animal fat.


The abstract

Mr. Rebwar discusses the most important results of his research article and says “the study has found that the reaction temperature is a quite important factor in increasing the biodiesel yield and 60°C may be considered the optimal temperature for the transesterification reaction.”


This is the summery of this study which is attempted to study the effect of reaction temperature on the biodiesel Yield from waste cooking oil and chicken fat that has been produced in a previous study [1]

The study has adopted several transesterification reaction temperature for instance, 40°C, 55°C and 60°C. The study has found that the reaction temperature is a quite important factor in increasing the biodiesel yield and 60°C may be considered the optimal temperature for the transesterification reaction. 


In his research article he has found that “the reaction temperature is a quite important factor in increasing the biodiesel yield and 60°C may be considered the optimal temperature for the transesterification reaction.”

Department of Chemical Engineering (DCHE)

Chemical Engineering Department at Koya University was established in 2006. The department is unique in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region because this field of engineering does not exist at other universities and higher education institutions within the region.

 The department is currently awarding a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering that normally takes four years of study.

The department of chemical engineering at Koya University aims at producing highly trained and professional chemical engineers that the Kurdistan region very much needs for its development. On research related activities, the department strives to create an environment for its academic staff to conduct internationally competitive researches in their fields of expertise and provide consultancy services to a variety of industrial sectors including oil, gas and energy industries.

Overall, the department aims at producing world class graduates and conducting high quality research.
