Abstract

Due to the increasing interest in the COz problem, the request for alternative fuels from regenerated vegetable energy sources is increasing. The present work describes the results of experiments using rapeseed oil, emulsified rapeseed oil, rapeseed oil methyl ester, and gas oil in a swirl-chamber diesel engine. The results show that the viscosity of rapeseed oil methyl ester is a little higher than that of gas oil and that the smoke concentration of rapeseed oil methyl ester is about 50% lower than that of gas oil. Furthermore, NOx smoke concentrations of emulsified rapeseed oil are lower than those of gas oil and energy consumption is similar to that in the case of operation with gas oil and rapeseed oil methyl ester.
