3rd Year Seminar ReportOn ALCOHOL AS AN ALTERNATIVE FUEL IN I.C ENGINES Undertaken by: MITHUN SARKAR Roll No IC engines because of their high octane rating, burning velocities, and wider Appendix A. Both acts are mandating the procurement of alternative fuel vehicles. Alcohols have been used as a fuel. The first four aliphatic alcohols are of interest as fuels . into its main agenda. Alcohol fuels had become part of five main alternative fuels: Two of which were alcohols; methanol and ethanol.

The poor auto-ignition capability of alcohols is responsible for severe knock due to rapid burning of vaporized alcohol [1,4] and combustion quenching caused by high latent heat of vaporization and subsequent charge cooling.

More fuel can be burned with the same amount of air. Therefore, since the s, all new cars have been fitted with electronically controlled fuel injection EFI systems.

Liquid fuels are preferred for IC engines because they are easy to store and have reasonably good calorific value. Alcohol fuel Biobutanola gasoline replacement.

Rapid increases in temperature cause more severe weather to occur, such as hurricanes. Retrieved 24 August Retrieved 4 November There has been considerable debate about how useful bioethanol is in replacing gasoline. It is a high octane fuel with anti-knock index numbers of over Retrieved 27 August Archived from the original PDF on 28 September Archived PDF from the original on The graph on the i.c.engijes shows figures calculated by the Aoternative government for the purposes of the Renewable transport fuel obligation.



Archived from the original PDF on 5 October Gasoline C made with Hydrous Ethanol. Typical upgrades include modifications to: Gasoline has lots of impurities in it.

The reason for this difference in stoichiometric ratio is because ethanol is an oxygenated fuel An engine that is supplied with more fuel than is required by the stoichiometric ratio is said to be running rich. Bi-fuel vehicle Flexible-fuel vehicle Hybrid vehicle Multifuel Plug-in hybrid.

Ethanol fuel

The bottom line here, though, is that the E10 standard has been around since the s, and automobile manufacturers have had to address these issues even with a low ethanol blend. It requires a minimum of modification to the engine, since alcohol injector is placed at the take air manifold.

Nissan plans to create a technology that uses liquid ethanol fuel as a source to generate hydrogen within the vehicle itself.

Of sugar beet Plants we get kg. Rapid increases in temperature cause the glacial ice at the North and South Poles to melt, raising sea levels; which will flood many major cities of the world. Engines External combustion engine Internal combustion engine Steam engine Gas turbine engine Steam engine Gas turbine engine. Because alcohol is partially oxygenated, it produces less overall pollution, including ozone.


Ethanol contains more oxygen than gasoline. It can be made from very common crops such as hempsugarcanealternativeecassava and corn.


Starch and cellulose molecules are strings of glucose molecules. Prairie Oak Publishing, Maryville, Missouri. Nature 7 December Ethanol fuel is ethyl alcoholthe same type of alcohol found in alcoholic beveragesused as fuel. Air pollution control dispersion modeling Industrial ecology Solid waste treatment Waste management Water agricultural wastewater treatment industrial wastewater treatment sewage treatment waste-water treatment technologies water purification.

For instance, a separate survey reports that production of ethanol from sugarcane, which requires a tropical climate to grow productively, returns from 8 to 9 units of energy for each unit expended, as compared to corn, which only returns about 1. Alcohool 14 March Bioethanol is a form of renewable energy that can be produced from agricultural feedstocks. Cellulosic ethanol offers promise because cellulose fibers, a major and universal component in plant cells walls, can be used to produce ethanol.
