    Abstract :

    The depletion of conventional automotive fuels, the increasing number of vehicles and stringent emission norms are the challenges in front of automotive industry. The tyre pyrolysis oil (TPO) is viewed as an attractive alternate fuel for internal combustion engines. Tyre pyrolysis oil is obtained by the pyrolysis of waste tyres. Tyre pyrolysis oil is blended into petroleum diesel in different proportions viz. 10, 20 and 30 percent by volume. The properties of fuel samples are measured by standard methods. The performance, combustion and emission characteristics are studied on a single cylinder, four stroke, water cooled compression ignition engine. Ignition delay for TPO blends is higher than diesel. TPO blends show heat release rate comparable to diesel in premixed phase. TPO blends show high brake specific fuel consumption and low brake thermal efficiency compared to diesel. The TPO diesel blends are found to produce high smoke compared to diesel.
