ABSTRACT The CI engine is used more than any other type of engine for transportation thermal power generation and many miscellaneous Industrial applications. It has been established as the most efficient of all engines the exhaust pollutants from combustion in CI engine are not different from those of other combustion processes the difference being only the use of fuel and concentration of individual pollutants. The use of non-conventional energy source has greatly influenced the CI engine. Bio-mass in the form of cashew nut shell represents a renewable and abundant source of energy in India. The Cashew nut shell oils are found to be a renewable natural resource of unsaturated phenols with long linear chain and marked absence of anacaridic acid. The oil is completely miscible in diesel and is found to have low corrosive effect and this promise to be a potential fuel. The oil has low ash and water content. The properties of CNS oil have been found to be amazingly near to that of petroleum fuels.
