Mahua methyl ester (MME), conventional diesel, trans-esterification process


In this present work, Mahua oil a non-edible type is used for studying its suitability in diesel engine and to study the fuel properties such asspecific fuel consumption, brake thermal efficiency, emissions of CO, CO2, NOx, and un-burnt hydrocarbonsof methyl ester of Mahua oil blends with diesel fuel from 20 to 100% by volume and running in a single cylinder four-stroke diesel engine. Tests were performed on the diesel engine; various above mentioned properties of these fuels are evaluated and compared to that of conventional diesel fuel.
