Diesel/2-methylfuran blends show higher brake thermal efficiency, higher NOx than diesel

Diesel/2-methylfuran blends show higher brake thermal efficiency, higher NOx than diesel 22 February 2016 Researchers at Wuhan University report on the first comprehensive study of the combustion and emissions performance of blends of diesel and the renewable fuel 2-methylfuran (MF) in compression-ignition engines. Their paper is published in the journal Fuel . Among their findings were that diesel–MF blends show higher brake thermal efficiency (BTE) than pure diesel. However, diesel–MF blends also lead to higher NOx emissions than pure diesel and the NOx emissions are increased with the increase of MF fraction. On the other hand, the soot emissions from diesel–MF blends are significantly reduced compared to pure diesel. The CO and HC emissions from tested fuels are nearly the same at medium- and high-engine loads. Pure diesel produces lower CO emissions and higher HC emis...
