Abstract– The experimental investigations on the influence of Aluminium Oxide Nanoparticles blended Chicken Fat Oil Biodiesel (Methyl Esters) on the Performance & Emission characteristics of CI engine is reported in this paper. In the experimentation, the proportion of 50ppm & 100ppm of Aluminium Oxide Nano-particles were mixed with Chicken Fat Oil Biodiesel. The analyses were progressed with a blending ratio of B20CFOME (Chicken fat Oil Methyl ester) individually and in combination of the blending ratio of B20CFOME with Aluminium Oxide Nano-particles in the proportion of 50ppm & 100ppm respectively. The results revealed that, there is a significant increase in brake thermal efficiency and reduction in brake specific fuel consumption for both B20CFOME blending and the B20CFOME with Nano additive-blends. The Emission parameters like hydrocarbons & carbon monoxides are decreased whereas, the slight increase in nitrogen oxides for B20CFOME & B20CFOME with Nano additive blends were noticed when compared with diesel. In conclusion, all the parameters studied were displayed better performance at in combination of B20CFOME with Nano additive-blends compared with an individual blending ratio of B20CFOME.
