Abstract

The kinetics of exhaust particle oxidation using biodiesel are explored in this study. Studies on this subject are beneficial for estimating the change in the thermal budget of the Diesel Particulate Filter, which is an essential part of the aftertreatment system when using biodiesel. Biodiesel yielded oxidation rates about six times higher than those seen using regular diesel fuel, for the 700 to 825 °C range. This difference in oxidation rate is discussed as related to the change in the metallic ash loading to the particle from the lube oil additive package and particle nanostructure.
