The goals of this project were to identify differences in the composition of combustion emissions between diesel and biodiesel and to determine if an emissions meter would be a suitable addition to a laboratory experiment. This was achieved by testing combustion emissions of the two fuels and mixtures using a flue gas analyzer. Clear trends were identified between biodiesel proportions and exhaust concentrations of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, as well as the effect of temperature.
