  • Abstract

    The study titled “Performance and Emission Studies on a 4 stroke Diesel Engine Using Methyl Ester of ALGAE Oil with EGR” involves detail investigation of characteristics (performance and emission] of Blends of Methyl Esters of ALGAE oil by varying the EGR control value (5 to 20%] using direct injection diesel engine.From the preceding studies on similar title it’s established that the release of NOX is higher in ALGAE based biodiesel.The focus of this study is about the NOX emission and how it can be reduced by using the cooled EGR.
