The present work describes an experimental investigation concerning the exhaust emissions and the electric energy generation using blends of diesel and an alternative fuel obtained through the low temperature conversion process applied to petrochemical residue. The alternative fuel (low temperature conversion fuel (LTCF)) was obtained in a pilot unit. The exhaust emissions (CO, CO2, O2, NO, NOx, and SO2) were also studied. The results show that the use of diesel-LTCF blends in a stationary engine is an alternative for the use of petrochemical residues. The mixture of 10vol% of LTCF and 90vol% of diesel is the best one concerning the exhaust emissions.
