The single-cylinder engine in the Motorlab at NTNU is now operational with direct injection of ammonia and biodiesel. The diesel fuel system has been upgraded, improving the reliability and stability of the injection pressure. The GDI injection has been synchronized to the engine encoder, offering full control of injection timing with high precision. Initial tests […]
“Effects of using ammonia as a primary fuel on engine performance and emissions in an ammonia/biodiesel dual-fuel CI engine “
The ACTIVATE team published their results on ammonia/biodiesel dual-fuel engine in the International Journal of Energy Research (IF=5.16) on 24 June 2022. Free open access here. Abstract: Ammonia is a promising alternative fuel that can replace current fossil fuels. Hydrogen carrier, zero carbon base emissions, liquid unlike hydrogen, and can be produced using renewable resources, […]
