The Effect of Rape Oil - Diesel Oil Mixture Composition on Particulate Matter Emission Level in Diesel Engine 2001-01-3388
Vegetable oils are very attractive as alternative fuels in view of closed carbon circulation in atmosphere and what follows the restriction of the greenhouse effect. Rape oil is one of plant derived fuels which use as a diesel fuel is thoroughly studied in many countries (Germany, Austria, France). The results of research in which particulate matter emission was measured in the 13-Mode Test Procedure, for rape oil - diesel oil mixtures with 10%, 15%, 20%, 30% and 40% rape oil contents, and comparatively for diesel oil, have been presented in the paper. AD 3.152 DI engine was the object of investigation. The research was conducted in conformity with the ECE R49 standard.
