Bioethanol REsearch : Bioethanol of Cassava More Superior

' Machine so it feels lighter , " said Dr. Agus Eko Tjahjono , motorists bioethanol . Since 2 years ago Agus who also heads the Center for Technology Pati use B15 bio-ethanol mixture . That is, the total capacity of 80 liter tank of his car , filled with 68 liters of petrol that is mixed 12 liters of ethanol from cassava . According to an alumnus of Hiroshima University , Japan , with increased ethanol power so that the pull of the engine lubrication lighter .
That 's just one of the advantages oplosan gasohol and gasoline - ethanol blends , red , ' said Prawoto , head of Institute of Thermodynamics , Motor , and Propulsion ( TMP ) , BPPT , Serpong .
The effectiveness of fuel from fermented cassava has been proved in a room measuring 15 mx 10 m at the Laboratory of TMP BPPT .
Not only the rate of bio -fuel engines oplosan tested , but also the comparison with fossil fuels . Oil that is pure gasoline , oil, oil mixed with gasoline ethanol 3 , 10 , 20 % , ( hereinafter referred to as E3 , E10 , and E20 ) . Research using a vehicle that runs on the (idle ) and direct application on the road .
When idle , the test involves two things: the testing of performance such as traction force , power , speed and fuel consumption and exhaust emission testing as carbon monoxide , hydrocarbons , and nitrogen oxides . Prior to counting , environmental conditions must be at a temperature of 25oC and a pressure of 100 kPa . After a full step on the gas pedal , the speed increases until it reaches 30 km / h , the condition is stabilized for 5 seconds for data retrieval . Speed ​​is then increased to 40 , 50 , 70 , and 80 km / h .
According to Dr Prawoto , head of the testing of bioethanol and petrol , the addition of ethanol to gasoline has been known to be effective as a material forming or oxygenated fuels with carbon- hydrogen - oxygen . Usually lead, aromatics , olefins / diolefins and butane into mixing chemicals used . Unfortunately , the impact is more visible ; proven to reduce children's intelligence lead , benzene causes cancer . It is therefore very important replacing chemicals with environmentally friendly materials . Hall lab test results BPPT TMP , ethanol proved to have better characteristics . Here are some test parameters .
Carbon monoxide ( CO )
CO emission bio-ethanol fueled cars E3 1.35 % ppm; E10 , 1.38 %, and E20 , 0.76 % . That means that CO emissions will decrease with the addition of ethanol . The addition of 10 % ethanol can reduce emissions of CO emissions by 70 % . Because the exhaust emissions of CO gas value reached 4.51 % .
The lack of waste compounds that can trigger cancer cells that may improve the quality of fresh air . Excessive inhalation of carbon dioxide can bind to hemoglobin in the blood that interfere with concentration .
Nitrogen oxides ( NOx )

Unfortunately , the decline in the amount of CO emission is not accompanied by a decrease in the value of nitrogen oxides ( NOx ) . Effluent nitrogen oxide triggers global warming on higher ethanol reached at E3 1272 ppm , 1078 ppm on the E10 , the E20 and 1870 ppm . Whereas gasoline contains only 953 ppm NOx .
The high emissions of NOx can be overcome because , 'Engines of vehicles are now equipped catalytic converter , " said Soni Sulistia Wirawan , BPPT researchers . Catalytic converter is egg -shaped ceramic clad steel or platinum . Function decreases the amount of nitrogen oxide emissions . Molecule that touches NOx reduction catalyst bound catalyst then converted to nitrogen dioxide . While O2 is released into the air .


By E20 , the hydrocarbon exhaust emissions 1 % lower than pure gasoline . Double impact of low hydrocarbon emissions . Positive impact on human health . Hydrocarbons trigger danger of intelligence , reproductive health , and symptoms of headache in humans . As for engine durability.

If you want your site or your blog with great success , then the first thing you notice is your name . Same with if you want to be a celebrity , your name should be easy to remember.
Which is more easily remembered by you : or or or ?
I think any answer .
So now the question which is more easily remembered by visitors to your site ? And which one would they prefer to visit ? [ which in turn will create higher traffic ]
I think the answer will remain the same , .
Therefore , try to have an own domain . The visitors will tend to remember the name short and they would prefer to visit sites that have a short name .
Do not let them run away just because the name of your website / blog that is too long .
[ 2 ] Write a pillar articles
The definition of pillar articles are the articles that serve as a " pillar / buffer " traffic to your site .
These articles are usually an article of type " list" , like 10 Tips to Improve traffic , Top 5 Blog Technology , Definition of Internet Marketing , and the like .
These types of articles will attract traffic pillar like how magnets attract iron , because people will always find articles like this . People always need information about the definition of a thing, or the 10 best list for xxxxxxx or the like .
Unlike with articles that talk about personal experiences , people are not too interested in such articles . May be interested , but will be forgotten --- and ultimately were not visited again , and not referenced to others .
The bottom line : the articles are always sought after and make others want to visit it many times PLUS pass it to others .
[ 3 ] Be diligent to update the post
One of the most important tips to increase the number of visits to your blog is to write often .
People will be happy to visit your blog if they always get a new article , which is fresh , fresh. They will not like it, even disappointed , if it comes to your blog and just treated to the old articles .
It was probably treated like a stale fish .
So if you want your site to have a loyal reader , who regularly visited , frequently update your blog . My suggestion , at least 2-3 days there should be a new article . Or , if you can every day even better .
[ 4 ] Frequently commented
To get traffic to your blog , one of the other ways that can be used is often commented on another blog .
By the time you write a comment on another blog , of course you will be asked for the URL ( address ) from your site / blog , is not it? Well , from where traffic is coming .
Make sure you include your blog URL correctly , or the URL of the blog post you want to promote it properly.
[ 5 ] Use Feedburner
To increase traffic to your blog , one of the other tips you can do is to utilize the services of .
Take advantage of free services from to increase the number of RSS reader of your blog , or even to facilitate the readers who want to enjoy your blog via email .
I personally use FeedBurner to , and the results for each post I could have dozens or even hundreds of readers in an instant (and free ) .
[ 6 ] Submit your article to Social Bookmark
Do not underestimate the power of viral marketing !
Submit your articles to various social bookmarking services like , or or to increase your traffic .
Every time someone did searching an appropriate topic with the article you submit to these sites , you have the opportunity to get additional traffic visitors are free .
[ 7 ] Optimization SEO
Get many more free traffic from SEO !
Learn SEO ( not described in this article ) and apply it to your blog / site, and even for the pages in your site / blog . Traffic from SEO is highly qualified and targetted , and 100 % free .
My own experience , for some domains I have, I can produce about 300-400 visitors per day for free just by relying on SEO alone . Free traffic , free money .
So do not waste it.
[ 8 ] Create an article that is "in" ( popular )
A simple trick that can make your blog get rich is to make the trip to the post title ( and content ) is concerned with a thing which is becoming a " trend " in the community .
Suppose that the society is no case of " Flooding in Jakarta " or " Mount Merapi erupts " , then you can try to create an article in this regard .
By writing articles related to an event that is popular , so you can attract a lot of links from other blogs or even occupy high positions in search engines ( eg Google ) for keywords related news articles ( since no other blogs that discuss ) .
In the end , your traffic can increase dramatically .
[ 9 ] Exchange links
Old-fashioned way ? Eits , should not be underestimated . Exchanging links even looks old , but I see for yourself that this is very effective .
Blogs I could get a few hundred ( not hundreds ) of new visitors a day just from the results of exchanging links with many other blogs .
If you are really serious business, do not waste a single visitor. For a visitor who knows that you consider " trivial " ( not significant ) of visitors who actually " bring money " for you .
Never underestimate the little things .
[ 10 ] Place an ad
As a last resort , if indeed you have no talent in a variety of promotions for free , or you need instant results that normally can not be achieved through the free traffic , my advice is : advertising .
You can use various means of advertising , ranging from PPC Text , to the banner . Starting from a specific network to handle advertising ( like Google Adwords , KumpulBlogger ) or advertising on personal blogs of others.
The last way is frankly a bit expensive , but if you can use it well ( traffiknya mennjadi play money ) , it does not matter . It costs nothing to advertise if they received the results of several thousand to several million .
Is not it ?
Hopefully helpful, :)
