Alternative fuel for a standard diesel engine

2006 (English)In: International Journal of Engine Research, ISSN 1468-0874, E-ISSN 2041-3149, Vol. 7, no 1, 51-63 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Alternative fuels have been developed for the commercial diesel products Mk1 and EN590. Appropriate additives were selected from a broad range of oxygenates including alcohols, acetals, ethers, esters and nitrates by a process of systematic elimination. The resulting fuels called Biodiesel 15 meet all existing standards in force for diesel fuel, are stable and have similar performance characteristics to standard diesel. Significantly Biodiesel 15 is much cleaner than standard diesel with around 30% or more reductions in particulate matter in the exhaust emissions. CO2 emissions are much lower with Biodiesel 15 than with the standard diesel products. Other regulated emissions are on a par with Mk1. The fuel consumption of Biodiesel 15 is 2% lower than that of conventional Mk1.
