The reserves of petroleum based fuels are being rapidly depleted, because of the increased use of fossil fuels
for energy production. It is well known that the future availability of energy resources as well as the need for
reducing the emission from the fuels used has increased the need for the utilization of regenerative fuels.. In this study, the effects
ethanol-gasoline blend with Waste Plastic derived oil in a twin cylinder Nano engine was investigated. This project aims at using the
Waste Plastic derived oil as an alternate fuel in petrol engines. The performance and emission tests were conducted in a NANO engine.
The main aim of this project is to find a solution to the mounting problem of waste plastic disposal, for which the plastics are converted
into useable fuel. The test fuels were prepared using 99.9% pure ethanol and gasoline with WPO blend, in the ratio of E5 + 5 WPO, E15
+ 15 WPO, E25 + 25 WPO and the rest gasoline. The experimental results reveal an increase in brake thermal efficiency for the blends
when compared to that of sole fuel. During this investigation, the emission tests are made with the help of the AVL di gas analyzer,
in which CO, CO2
, HC, NOx is appreciably reduced and O2
is increased for all the blends when compared to gasoline as the sole fuel.
