Quality Requirements of Bioethanol Samples Obtained from the Sugar Beet Cultivated in the Experimental Fields of Viisoara-Turda, within the Agricultural Year 2007-2008
AbstractThis paper presents some of the results obtained during the experiences carried out within the sugar beet experimental field of Viisoara, Cluj County. In the agricultural year 2007 – 2008, several researches were conducted on sugar beet in order to obtain bioethanol, using sugar beet as main biological raw material. Taking into account the quality requirements of bioethanol, one carefully monitored the sugar beet crop evolution regarding the influence of different technology factors, such as irrigation regime and fertilization, on sugar beet yield. As a result, after applying a number of test methods, one determined the characteristics of bioethanol for each sample obtained from sugar beet in the experimental fields of Viisoara, according to the EN 15376 standard requirements, as a component of the automotive fuel for petrol vehicles, according to EN 228:2008 standard.
