Abstract

The development of any nation mostly depends on the kind of technology and amount of energy available. Fossil fuels always a favorite source of energy for the world. But due to rise in the cost and the depletion of fossil fuels made the world to think about the other sources. Biodiesel is one such area where many studies have been done recently. It is generally manufacture through the process of transisterification (alcholysis) process of oil in the presence of methanol and catalyst. This paper examines the suitability of biodiesel formed from different sources of oil to be used as a conventional fuel in the compression ignition engine. It also compares the performance and emission of biodiesel with that of plain diesel and found that biodiesel can be a good source of energy in upcoming years. Comparison has been made on performance parameters like brake thermal efficiency (BTE), Brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) and the emissions like CO, HC and NOx.
