Abstract

The paper reports the experimental results concerning emissions from 30 kWe commercial micro gas turbine feed with blends of straight vegetable oil with fossil fuel. Both gaseous and particulate emissions were measured at full and partial load for blends 10% v/v and 20% v/v of rapeseed and sunflower oils with JET A1 kerosene. The variations of nitric oxide and carbon monoxide emissions were taken into account to evaluate the combustor behavior at different loads and blends. The effects of the fuel composition on the variations, in terms of concentrations and dimensions, of ultrafine - particulate matter were also evaluated.
