Abstract

The paper aims to establish the role of interaction of irrigation regime and nitrogen rates on main biodiesel characteristics and emissions. Four Nitrogen (N) fertilizer rates 0 (No), 100 (Nioo), 150 (N150) and 270 (N270) kg/ha, two irrigation regime (non-irrigated (Io) and irrigated at 50% from IUA (T) were established as feedstock treatments to obtain biodiesel through transesterification with methanol. The experiments were conducted in a randomized complete block design arrangement in split factorial with three replicates. Correlations between irrigation regime and nitrogen rates regarding the biodiesel main characteristics (cetane number, sulfur content and calorifique value) and emissions (carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides) were established. The recorded results show that, except for nitrogen oxides (NOx), the tested emissions are significantly lower than for conventional petroleum based diesel and the main characteristics respect the values of EN 14214 standard. Biodiesel emissions are significantly lower than the emissions from an engine burning normal diesel.
