COMPARATIVE PERFORMANCE AND EMISSION CHARACTERISTICS OF PETROLEUM, OIL SHALE AND TAR SANDS DERIVED DIESEL FUELS

The performance and emission characteristics of diesel fuels derived from oil shale and tar sands were compared with those of regular petroleum based #2 diesel fuel. The comparison based on diesel engine tests, shows only slight differences in performance and emissions. These differences can be related to physico-chemical properties. The effect of fuel bound nitrogen, which might be present in shale derived fuel, on NO//x emission was also studied.
