Abstract: Fossil fuel shortage and severe environmental problems have attracted great attention on the exploitation of clean renewable energies. The utilization of lignocellulosic biomass resources will play an increasingly important role in the future. The objective of the study is to optimize the parameters such as plastic pyrolysis oil diesel blend %, injection pressure and applied load of the single cylinder diesel engine through the Taguchi method. This paper investigated the emission characteristics of various blends of plastic pyrolysis oil with diesel on a Single cylinder four stroke diesel engine, and the other effect of parameters injection pressure and load are taken as variable for optimization. Plastic pyrolysis oil can be blended and used in many different concentrations, including P0D100 (pure biodiesel), P10D90 (10% plastic pyrolysis oil, 90% diesel), P20D80 (20% plastic pyrolysis oil, 80% diesel) and P30D70 (30% plastic pyrolysis oil, 70% petroleum diesel). As the experiment required simultaneously optimization of three parameter with four levels, taguchi method of optimization is used in this experiment.
