Abstract: We investigated the effects of biodiesel blending on emissions and efficiency in a non-road diesel engine. Rapeseed based biodiesel blended in increments of 25% with fossil diesel. It showed a decrease in CO2 emission (g/kwh) with increased engine load. Within the range of tests carried out, the NOx emissions from the biodiesel and its blends proved to be higher than those of petro-diesel fuel. Furthermore, a correlation was found with the NOx emissions and the flame temperature. The efficiency of the system improved with increase of biodiesel content in the fuel. As predicted, the results for CHP show a considerable improvement in overall efficiency.
