Title: Top Ten Blendstocks Derived From Biomass For Turbocharged Spark Ignition Engines: Bio-blendstocks With Potential for Highest Engine Efficiency

Abstract

More efficient engines enabled by better fuels derived from biomass could increase the fuel economy of the light duty (LD) fleet by 10% over current technology and planned developments. This report identifies top LD boosted spark ignition (BSI) biofuel candidates for further development and commercialization identified using a fuel property basis. The BSI merit function was used to evaluate the performance of candidate bio-blendstocks in improving engine efficiency. This report is aimed at biofuel researchers looking to better understand the efficiency implications of biofuels under development, as well as engine researchers who are interested in future biofuels with properties that enable more efficient engine design and operation.
