Abstract

Biodiesel has a vital role in recent years as an alternative fuel for diesel engines due to the depletion of petroleum resources in the near future. It is an environmentally friendly renewable resource of energy and can be produced from waste cooking oil (WCO) by transesterification process. The properties of biodiesel have comparable performance, emission and combustion characteristics to diesel fuel. In this a comparative study had been done between blends of biodiesel derived from WCO and diesel fuels. Diesel- WCO biodiesel blends of 10, 20, and 30, 100% was prepared. Experimental investigations were tested in a four strokes, single cylinder, diesel engine at a constant speed of 1500 rpm and variable loads. Diesel- biodiesel blends showed an increase in fuel consumption and specific fuel consumption in comparison with diesel fuel. Biodiesel blends showed a decrease in engine thermal efficiency about diesel fuel. At full load, CO2 emissions for biodiesel blends achieved an increase about diesel fuel. There were reductions in HC and CO emission for biodiesel blends compared to diesel fuel. It is recommended to use used cooking oil biodiesel up to 20% with diesel fuel without any engine modifications.
