This project titles’ long term stability of water-diesel emulsion in storage is to search for the best formula or method to ensure the stability of water-diesel emulsion in storage for a long period. Water-diesel emulsion is one of the ways to reduce diesel consumption in various sectors around the world. By reducing diesel consumption, the world can have better environment and cheaper industrial operation cost in the future. Water is immiscible in diesel and would be in two phase if both of them were mixed. But surfactant which acts as an emulsifier can be added to the mixture to emulsify the water and diesel. The ratio of water and diesel in the mixture, the amount and types of emulsifier, the pressure and temperature during mixing, and the method use emulsify the mixture will be considered as the most important factors to be study. Experiment will be conducted to analyze the characteristic of the emulsion fuel in the storage and engine. And one of the most important characteristics of the emulsified fuel is the stability of the formation of the emulsified fuel. The emulsified fuel tends to be separating into two phases of mixture after awhile. At the end of this project, the longest stability emulsified fuel with the optimum water-diesel ratio will be obtained with the formula. This can ensure that the emulsified diesel will be replacing the conventional diesel uses in the world today. As the conclusion, this project has the ability to help the world in facing the green house effect and the increment of operation cost.
