A Review on Effects of Nano Additives with Different Chemical Blended Fuels in CI Engine

Authors(2) :-V. Krishnan, G. Anbarasu

The emissions from the diesel engines seriously threaten the environment and considered one of the major sources of air pollutions. Many countries are evaluating a variety of alternative fuels for use in motor vehicles in an attempt to reduce greenhouse emissions, global warming and to improve the energy security of the nations. Blended fuel is a replacement for the diesel fuel in compressed ignition engines due to its significant environmental benefits. The use of blended fuel leads to reduction in particulate matter, hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions the decrease in fuel consumption and the nitrous oxide emission on diesel engine without any modification. The addition of Nano particles with blended fuel increases the efficiency and decreases the emissions. Hence it was planned to increase the combustion efficiency, thereby to increase the performance and to reduce the exhaust emissions by adding blended fuel at different proportions like 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% by volume with diesel; the outcome of the emission test also revealed that there was an appreciable reduction in emission of the combustion by product.
