Clean Diesel II – Developing a New Diesel
The project concerns the design and development of a hybrid engine using bio diesel
and self generating electric power unit. The Project aims to firstly, to develop
an experimental computer model for diesel engines burning bio-diesel with substantially
reduced emissions; secondly, to develop a test rig for a diesel engine using a range
of tools as well as two original means of reducing emissions particularly Nox in
diesel burning bio-diesel.
This proposed project is a continuation of an earlier successful EU non-nuclear
research project known as Clean Diesel. The earlier project led to the design of
several hybrid vehicles, a creative engine management system and innovative engine
component systems such as variable geometry turbochargers and application of a new
fuel injection system as well as a water injection system.
