Abstract

-corn In this study, we have evaluated the influence of Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide nanoparticles addition in hydrogen-corn blended biodiesel combustion performance and exhaust emission using a dual direct-injection compression-ignition engine. 5% of Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide were mixed with corn-vegetable oil methyl ester under ultrasonication. Results revealed that the addition of nanoparticles improved the Brake power by 22% (Titanium dioxide) and 4% (Zinc oxide). Consequently, 18% and 15% reduction in brake specific fuel consumption indeed at 50% load compared to neat diesel. Furthermore, the addition of nanoparticles also resulted in a reduction of emission values of 37% and 26% in hydrocarbon, 26% and 36% for carbon monoxide, 19% and 15% in nitrogen oxide and followed by 13% and 8% of smoke opacity. Therefore, the results proved that hydrogen-corn biodiesel blended with nanoparticles additive reports a positive effect on compression-ignition diesel engines without major modifications in engine.
