Abstract

This work is aimed at the basic analysis of diesel oil and rapeseed methyl ester and evaluation of limited and unlimited emission produced by their combustion. Thereafter, test results are compared, and there is also done the evaluation of emission – greenhouse gases, dangerous exhaust gases and strong carcinogens and their contents during fuel combustion. These measurements were performed at the Research Station Agroscope ART in Tänikon (AAT) in Switzerland and in cooperation with the Department of Transport and Handling (DTH), Faculty of Engineering, Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra.
