Abstract

Butanol is currently used as solvent in industry and is produced from petroleum. The biologic origin of butanol is becoming more interesting because of the biochemical improvement of the ABE fermentation process from different agro-food wastes [1] Bio-butanol shows better physical and chemical properties than ethanol as fuel in internal combustion engines [2] and is a promise biofuel for the future. The n-butanol isomer has been selected for this tests because it is to be used in the "Waste To Fuels" Research Project supported by the European Union. In this work, preliminary tests of a CFR variable compression ratio engine fueled with pure n-butanol are presented and compared with gasoline and ethanol.
