Ethylene glycol monoacetate (EGM) and dimethyl carbonate (DMC) are two hopeful alternative fuels as well as fuel additives to improve performance and emissions in CI engine, due to their high oxygen content. This paper presents comparisons of performance and emissions characteristics by use of diesel, EGM05 and DMC-EGM05 blends with experimental study on CI engine. Test results show that brake thermal efficiency for the DMC-EGM05 blend is higher than that of EGM05 blend. BSEC of DMC-EGM05 blend show decreasing trend for increasing brake power or load. CO emissions can be remarkably reduced with the addition of DMC and EGM to diesel compared to only EGM added blend. The obtained results show that the fuel which effectively reduces the CO emissions is less effective in reducing the NOx emissions. All these results indicate the potential of the DMC-EGM blend for clean combustion in diesel engine.
