Pyrolysis Oil, CI Engine, Diesel, Blended Fuel, Engine Performance


Reduction of biological fuel resources and stringent environmental laws have forced researchers to develop methods to sustainingly manage resources. The focus has been shifting towards energy recovery from waste materials which can solve the problems. One of the biggest wastes in the automobile sector is automobile tires. These have an unfavorable impact on the atmosphere if they are not disposed properly. Further, tires are a source of energy so it’s not suitable disposal means wastage of energy. Some methods have been developed to extract energy from waste tires. One of them is pyrolysis of tires which produces Tyre Pyrolysis Oil (TPO) by thermal decomposition of tires. The properties of TPO with diesel were analyzed and compared with diesel and found that it is also used as a fuel in diesel engines. Tests are carried out on a diesel engine running with dissimilar blends of TPO 15% on a volume basis. The value of the Taguchi identifies that compression ratio 18, injection pressure 160 bar and engine load 9 kg are optimum parameters for lowest specific fuel consumption. Engine performance is mostly influenced by engine load and is least influenced by injection pressure.
