Abstract: The Industrial revolution started in 1760, since then the hunt for conventional resources started. The demand always increased and the rate at which it increased now we see our resources at the edge of extinction. The other alarming aspect of conventional energy was pollution. The need of sustainable and least harmful alternate sources of energy has gained attentionin the 21st century. Till date Bio-diesel is the onlyproven option because of its properties like non-Sulphur emissions and low toxicity. Bio-fuel can be obtained in many forms and by many methods. I chose Algae oil or algal bio-fuel for my experiment. In the present work engine test are conducted on diesel direct injection engine by using algae as biodiesel, with A-10 (10 percent algae oil blended with 90% diesel on volume basis), A-20 (20 percent algae oil blended with 90% diesel on volume basis), A-30 (30 percent algae oil blended with 90% diesel on volume basis) and their effect on the performance and characteristic emissions are studied.
