Abstract: Increase in energy demand, stringent emission norms and depletion of oil resources led the researchers to find alternative fuels for internal combustion engines. Many alternate fuels like Alcohols, Biodiesel, LPG, CNG etc have been already commercialized in the transport sector. In this context, pyrolysis of solid waste is currently receiving renewed interest. The disposal of waste tyres can be simplified to some extent by pyrolysis. The properties of the Tyre pyrolysis oil (TPO) derived from waste automobile tyres were analyzed and compared with the petroleum products and found that it can also be used as a fuel for compression ignition engine. However, the crude TPO has a higher viscosity and sulphur content. The crude TPO was desulphurised and then distilled through vacuum distillation. In the present work, DTPO-diesel blends were used as an alternate fuel in a diesel engine without any engine modification. This paper presents the studies on the performance, emission and combustion characteristics of a single cylinder four stroke air cooled DI diesel engine running with the Distilled Tyre pyrolysis oil (DTPO).
