In the present day, emission by internal combustion engines causes several problems like acid rain, depletion of ozone layer, and global warming for which it has become a prior concern. The hazards further increases during cold weather conditions. In this paper, emission analysis has been carried out using single cylinder, 4 stroke, direct injection and water cooled variable compression ratio diesel engine. A thermal energy storage device (TESD) containing phase changing material (PCM) has been designed and tested for storing the waste energy of cooling water from engine and reutilizing it for pre-heating. The working principle of TESD is based upon the principle of absorbing and rejecting heat during phase change of PCM material. The test condition is 15° C and 1 atm pressure at which, the experiments are carried out using TESD. A significant reduction in CO (23.72%), HC (2.03%) and smoke opacity (6.05%) after 900secs and an increase in engine temperature upto 61ºC after 840secs of engine running is observed.
