Experimental comparison of pure hydrogen and HHO (hydroxy) enriched biodiesel (B10) fuel in a commercial diesel engine

Highlights Effects of H2 and HHO to performance and emissions of a diesel engine are examined. Fossil fuel dependency reduced at volumetric ratio of 10% by using biodiesel. Fuel pump plunger pin was re-set and diesel fuel injection has been decreased. In terms of exhaust gas emissions, H2 + B10 provided better results than HHO + B10. Engine performance […]

Experimental investigations on performance, emission and combustion characteristics of Diesel-Hydrogen and Diesel-HHO gas in a Dual fuel CI engine

Abstract Stringent emission norms being followed throughout the world increases the demand for clean and green fuels. Gaseous fuels like compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and hydrogen are promising alternatives to conventional diesel and gasoline. The use of hydrogen in the IC engine has gained interest among researchers as it can be […]

Glossary on air pollution

Abstract Most of the terms used in the air pollution literature come from a wide range of disciplines – particularly chemistry, meteorology, physics, and numerous branches of engineering and technology. Added to these are new terms that have been coined solely for use in air pollution work. All too frequently, terms that may appear to […]
