Abstract: This research is aimed at finding a sustainable alternate source of energy that can be used as a substitute for conventional fuel sources, which are fast dwindling towards the point of exhaustion. Bio-diesels are viewed as an effective alternate source of energy which can be better than conventional fossil fuels in its performance, combustion and greenhouse gas emission rates. The oil of rice bran methyl ester is used for experimentation. The oil is blended in different ratios with pure diesel in a process known as blending. The various blends are then subjected to performance test in a diesel engine. The biodiesel blends have also been tested for emission properties with and without exhaust gas recirculation. The results reveal that rice bran biodiesel emits less amount of carbon monoxide emissions.
