Authors: Prabhakar, S

Non-edible oils

Abstract: Five non-edible vegetable oils (nerium, jatropha, pongamia, mahua & neem) were selected as alternate fuels and comparison analysis of performance and emission were done. A comparative analysis was done for methyl esters of different oils in blends with diesel of different proportions. It was observed that a diesel engine runs successfully on a blend of 20% biodiesel and 80% diesel fuel without affecting engine performance. Methyl ester from Nerium oil, with properties close to diesel, showed better performance and emission characteristics, followed by esters of jatropha, Pongamia, Mahua and Neem oils. Hence Nerium blend can be used in existing diesel engines without compromising the engine performance.
