New Mechanical Science Study Findings Recently Were Reported by Researchers at Bengal Engineering and Science University (An experimental study on the performance and emission characteristics of a CI engine fuelled with Jatropha biodiesel and ...)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Current study results on Mechanical Science have been published. According to news reporting from Bengal, India, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The performance and emission characteristics of a compression ignition engine using mixture of jatropha biodiesel and mineral diesel have been experimentally investigated. It is observed that brake specific fuel consumption increases with higher percentage of biodiesel in the blends."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Bengal Engineering and Science University, "Brake thermal efficiency decreases with the increased percentage of biodiesel in the blends. The maximum efficiency is found to be 29.6% with pure diesel and 21.2% with pure biodiesel. Carbon mono-oxide and hydrocarbon emissions are improved with the addition of biodiesel to diesel."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "NOx emission is found to be increased with pure biodiesel by 24% compared to mineral diesel."
