Experimental investigations are carried on a single cylinder CI engine having rated power of 3.5 kW at constant speed of 1500 rpm at varying loads and the effect of concentration of nanoparticles in rice bran oil biodiesel and diesel blends are presented. A blend of 30% rice bran biodiesel and 70% diesel by volume (B30) is considered for study. Nano particles of copper metal at 50, 100 and 150 ppm are added to the B30 blend. Performance and emission characteristics are evaluated for the blends and results are compared with that of diesel. It is found that brake thermal efficiency of B30 blend with copper nanoparticle of 150 ppm is 7.06% higher than of diesel at full load. Smoke, carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions is reduced by 9.2%, 25.9%, 17.5% and 6.4% with that of diesel for B30 Cu 150 ppm.
