Abstract: In this contemporary era it is mandatory to increasing the usage of non edible biodiesel to replace the fossil fuels. This non edible biodiesels are produced from vegetable oils which is clean burning and renewable. This paper deals with the performance and emission characteristics on diesel engine with blends of Castor oil as biodiesel. Castor oil biodiesel is prepared by the use of adding 1% v/v H2SO4 after the transesterification process. The engine tests were performed with various blends B20, B40, B60 on a single cylinder, 4-stroke, diesel engine. The result shows Higher performance and lower emissions for B20 than the diesel and other blends. The brake thermal efficiency is higher than the diesel and CO, HC and NOX emissions were 22%, 8.4%, and 21% lesser than that of diesel.
Keywords: Castor biodiesel, Transesterification, Diesel engine, Performance, Emission, Castor blends.
