Efforts to reduce the dependency on fossil-based fuels have intensely been researched by scientists recently. Therefore, in internal combustion engines, the usability of various alternative fuels is still being evaluated. The present study experimentally focused on the illumination of the combined impacts of nanoparticle additives and hydrogen fuel on the performance and emission characteristics of a compression ignition engine. For this purpose, diesel fuel and combinations of diesel fuel, terebinth oil biodiesel, titanium dioxides nanoparticle, and hydrogen were utilized. Reduced engine performance caused by biodiesel was compensated with the use of nanoparticles. Further improvement was also observed with hydrogen addition. Emission results showed that carbon monoxide (CO) emission values can be reduced with biodiesel, nanoparticle additive, and hydrogen since they all have positive effects to enhance combustion quality and avoid incomplete combustion. On the other hand, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emission was increased due to a rise in cylinder temperature with the use of biodiesel, nanoparticle, and hydrogen.
