Abstract: Currently the Biggest threat to environment and public health is Air Pollution which is caused by emissions of hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides and sulphur oxides by burning of fossil fuels. In recent years consumption of fossil fuels by various factories has rapidly increased that has let for the search of alternative fuels. These fuels are also known as non-conventional fuels which can be used as a substitute for conventional fuels Algae oil is one of the promising potential sources of bio-fuels generated from microbes. It is generally preferred because it is sustainable and environment-friendly oil which have numerous advantages. So the algae oil has used for performance and emission test on a diesel engine. The blends have been made for testing B5, B10. In which 5% of methanol has mixed and others are raw algae oil (5% for B5 and 10% for B10) and Diesel (90% for B5 and 85% for B10). The Kirlosker Engine with 6.97 HP (5.2KW)@1500rpm is used for Performance analyzing. Parallels AVL emission analyzer and smoke detector were connected with the exhaust of the engine. All values of gases were displayed and compared.
