Title: Processing Sunflower Oil for Fuel
Author: Backer, L. F.; Jacobsen, L.; Olson, C.
Description: If systems for the production of vegetable oils into fuel for diesel powered tractors could be be developed close to the sites where the fuel would be used, the benefits would be reduced costs of shipping and the increased availability of these alternative fuels when petroleum fuels were in short supply. The article gives background into sunflower seed processing for oil for fuel, it's research, oil extraction plants, auger press extractors and filtration processes. Sunflowers appeared to be the best adaptable oil source for North Dakota.
