Abstract

fuels research gain interest among researchers these recent years due to the world today is faced with serious global warming and environmental pollution. Besides, fossil fuel will become rare and faces serious shortage in the near future. Biodiesel as a cleaner renewable fuel has been considered as the best substitution for diesel fuel due to it being used in any compression ignition engine without any modification. Biodiesel can be produced and derived from the plant oil such as Jathropa Curcas, Calophyllum inophyllum, Palm Oil and etc. In order to utilized biodiesel the characteristic of the fuel need to be understand, this is because the composition of the fuel is different from the fossil diesel. This study has been conducted in order to investigate the effect of biodiesel blending on combustion at different percentages to diesel. The methodologies for conducting this research analysis project are divided into four categories which are based on past research papers, journal and articles related to this topic, testing and analysis the biodiesel with fossil diesel blend 20% and 10% at different percentage exposed to the isothermal heating with heating rate of 10°C/min using TGA, engine performance analysis and lastly the emission analysis both based on past research in order to compare it between Jatropha Curcas Biodiesel Blends with fossil diesel. The result will be shown to the readers in the term of comparison between Jatropha Curcas Biodiesel Blends with fossil diesel in term of thermal characterization, engine performance and the emission produced compared to the fossil diesel in order to justify the similarity between those fuels. By doing this, the conclusion can be made either Jatropha Curcas Biodiesel Blends can be used as a substitute to the fossil diesel or not.
