Alternative Diesel Fuels

Author:
A key topic of many technical discussions has been the development of alternative fuels to power the compression ignition engine. Reasons for this include the desire to reduce the dependency on petroleum-based fuel and, at the same time, to reduce the particulate matter (PM) and NOx emissions. Also, there has been interest generated in the diesel engine because of the reduction in greenhouse gases that has been proposed during the 2008-2012 time frame in Europe and the regulations that affect diesel engines in the United States.

The challenge lies in accomplishing such reductions while still maintaining the durability of the engine. The 25 technical papers in this SAE Progress in Technology Series book discuss the findings and testing procedures used to evaluate alternative fuels and blends such as:

  • Sunflower and safflower oils
  • Methanol
  • BioDiesel
  • Soybean oil
  • Diethyl ether
  • Esterfied vegetable oil
  • Low sulfur diesel fuel blend
  • Oxygenated fuels
  • Alcohol
  • LPG
  • Water blend emulsions
  • Hydrogen
  • Natural gas
