Diesel fuels are widely used globally in many applications involving heavy industries and transportations. With the majority of heavy lifting machines, generators, military vehicles and industrial power horse are using diesel engines; diesel fuel demand is ever increasing and with the supply of fossil fuel decreasing, an alternative source of diesel is needed to provide sustainability. Recent studies shows that biofuels are the most sustainable source of biodiesel but requires special methods and catalysts in obtaining the biodiesel. This project however, focuses on the direct blending of Crude Palm Oil (CPO) with diesel to produce biodiesel. The blends are categorized with different Diesel to CPO volumetric ratio of 100:0, 75:25, 50:50, 25:50, and 0:100. The calorific value of the pure CPO obtained was 39590 J/g compared to 42579J/g of diesel. With each blend having even more calorific value than pure CPO, it shows a promising result on the application of the blends to work on diesel engines. The blended fuels were tested on the diesel engine and the emissions were analyzed to give the results in the results section.
