Performance and Emission Characteristics of Algae Biofuel-Diesel Blends in Compression Ignition Engine-A Review
In spite of India is fastly growing economy in the world, highly dependent for petroleum on foreign countries. India is spending more on oil export which has to be minimized. One of available solution is use of biofuel in compression ignition engine, since most of the transport sector use diesel as a fuel for compression ignition engine. For the country like India, microalgae biodiesel will emerge as a feasible solution to rise above diesel demand. India consumes almost 120 million tonnes per year of petroleum product, and algae biofuel has the capacity to replace this large volume of oil. This paper critically reviews the performance and emission characteristics of Algae-diesel blend in CI-Engine.
