Abstract
The use of biodiesel offers significant advantages with regards to the reduction of total harmful engine emissions with the exception of NOx. Biodiesel is a renewable resource and soybean oil is known to be economically viable as a biodiesel fuel. Recent studies from the Environmental Protection Agency have shown that soybean oil alone or blended with #2 diesel fuel results in a significant decrease in PM, CO, and HC. However, the NOx emissions increase. Compact Membrane Systems, Inc. (CMS) proposes to develop a field installable system for the reduction of NOx emissions from agricultural diesel powered engines burning biodiesel fuel without the use of additional exhaust gas abatement.
