Study finds biodiesel blend reduces total particle mass in emissions but may have greater adverse health effect per mass than diesel

Green Car Congress

They found that total particulate gravimetric mass collected over the engine test cycle was more than 2 times higher for B0 than for B20 fuel. Particle number distributions aggregated over one example drive cycle indicate a unimodal B0 distribution centered at 51 nm, but a B20 distribution with a smaller diameter mode at 32.2 51 nm.

AvtoVAZ launches 3 concepts at Moscow Motor Show; collaboration with Renault-Nissan

Green Car Congress

LADA XRAY, a hatchback SUV based on the B0 platform, was developed by AvtoVAZ stylists while its body was developed jointly by Renault and AvtoVAZ. AvtoVAZ, the largest automaker based in Russia, a part of Rostec Corporation, introduced three new LADA concept cars at the Moscow International Motor Show 2014.

Jatropha Biodiesel-FT Blends Reduce Most Criteria Pollutants Compared to Neat FT; Higher NOx

Green Car Congress

The authors tested JBD blended with FT fuel in volumetric ratios of 0:100, 25:75, 50:50, 75:25, and 100:0 (B0, B25, B50, B75, and B100). However, NO x emissions were higher, and the engine thermal efficiency was slightly lower with higher JBD blends. Compared to FT fuel, higher JBD blends showed higher BSFC and lower thermal efficiency.

Optimizing Turbo Diesels for Emissions and Performance with 5% and 20% Biodiesel Blends

Green Car Congress

With each fuel at each operating location, the optimal ECM parameter settings resulted in the reduction of BSNO x , BSPM, and peak dP/dt to levels comparable to or lower than the corresponding nominal B0 levels. Their study was published online 21 December in the ACS journal Energy & Fuels. Fuel was donated by BP. Resources.
