Experimental investigations carried out in a diesel engine incorporated with Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), fuelled with the blend of diesel and plastic oil along with an antioxidant additive (p-Phenylenediamine) are presented in this paper. Plastic oil is produced from waste plastics through the process of pyrolysis which could be a potential substitute to fossil diesel in diesel engine applications. Production of plastic oil provides solution to the global twin problems of plastic waste management and energy crisis. Investigations have been carried out with the test fuel separately, test fuel with the additive, test fuel with incorporation of EGR in the engine and test fuel with additive and EGR incorporation. Test results revealed that blend of diesel and plastic oil exhibited performance and emissions at par with pure diesel, 18% reduction in NO emission through EGR incorporation as compared to without EGR and 15% reduction in NO through use of antioxidant additive. It is found that the combined effect of EGR incorporation in the engine and antioxidant additive to the test fuel is a drastic reduction in NO emission to the tune of 28% in comparison with pure diesel mode.
