 en The effect of opium poppy oil diesel fuel mixture on engine performance and emissions
Aksoy, F.

Abstract

Recently, decreasing of fossil fuel reserves and their negative effect on environment have increased the interest in alternative energy sources. One of the alternative energy sources is vegetable oils. In this study, blends of 50 % opium poppy oil 50 % diesel fuel mixture are tested as alternative fuel on a single cylinder, 4-stroke, air cooled, pre-combustion chamber diesel engine at different speeds and its effects on engine performance and emissions are investigated. When compared to the diesel fuel as average, engine torque and power decrease at 4 % and 5.73 %, respectively. Specific fuel consumption increases by using of 50% opium poppy oil 50 % diesel fuel mixture. When compared to the diesel fuel as average, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides emissions of 50 % opium poppy oil 50 % diesel fuel mixture decrease to 15.5 % and 5.9 %, respectively. Diesel fuelopium poppy oil mixture has been found notably successful and environment friendly as an alternative fuel for diesel engines.
