    Abstract

    The optimalisation of biodiesel exploitation becoming 5 % in the year 2025 later as energy resource in this country which has written in National Energy Policy (KEN, 2003 – 2020) have been the reasons to improve biodiesel technology. Biodiesel has been known as one of the renewable material and ha sthe potential to reduce exhaust gas emission in diesel engine. Biodiesel is a diesel fuel made from natural, renewable source such as vegetable oil and animal fats. Fats and oil are chemically reacted with an alcohol (methanol) to produce chemical compounds known as fatty acid methyl ester (ME) or biodiesel. In this research it is used 10%, 20% and 30% methyl ester (crude palm oil mixed with petroleum diesel fuel) compared with 100% petroleum diesel fuel. Blends of up to 30% biodiesel hopes can be used in nearly all diesel equipment and do not need modification of the engine. The result of investigation, the use of biodiesel can decrease of emissions of No x , CO 2 , CO, and HC.
