Paper Title:
Process Optimization of Cake Oriented Screw-Pressing of Jatropha curcas
  Abstract

Jatropha curcas from Panzhihua area was used to explore the optimal process of screw-pressing. And the result shows the optimal process parameters are as follows: the water content of kernel is 3%; the ratio of kernel to shell is 8:2; the temperature of the mixture of kernel and shell entering the pressing chamber is 100°C; the temperature of the pressing chamber is 170°C; and the corresponding oil yield is 87.8958%.
