Abstract Both in Poland and abroad great interest has been observed in recent years in applying alternative fuels for the feeding of diesel engines. For self-ignition engines such fuels can be pure plant oils or methyl esters procured on their matrix. Yet a comparsion of work parameters of these engines working on plant fuels and crude-oil fuels points out a number of problems connected with the operational properties of biofuels, decrease in engine power and increase in the emission of carbon oxides in exhaust gases. A possible development trend in the application of plant fuels is their initial catalytic processing taking place immediately before spraying the fuel in injector channels, the surface of which catalytic material is laid onto in the from of platinum metals. The reactions of dyhydrogenation takin place then cause the creation of free hydrogen particles, which in turn improves combustion conditions contributing to reduction in fuel consumption and emission of toxic compounds into the surroundings.
