Abstract: A study on performance and emission of compression ignition (CI) engine has been made by utilizing biogas blends at different loads. The flow rate of biogas with air was important parameter to get the desired results. The blend of 30% with diesel was optimum which yielded optimum emission characteristics. Higher specific fuel consumption and lower brake thermal efficiency was observed when the proportion of biogas mixes with diesel in comparison with neat diesel. The out coming results from the experimental investigation exhibited reduction in NOx emission and smoke opacity. The other emissions hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) has been higher than diesel. The use of biogas as an alternative fuel in correct proportion with diesel can meet the energy demand on scarcity of conventional fuel.
