“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, […]

0D and 3D Simulation

The numerical simulations focused on the development of combustion technology for a compression ignition (CI) engine fueled with a mixture of biodiesel and ammonia.The numerical simulations have been conducted based on three main objectives: Development of an overall methodology for simulating CI combustion engines fueled with a mixture of biodiesel and ammonia. An application of […]

Test stand at NTNU

Development of optimal diesel and ammonia injections strategy is supported through experimental work being conducted at NTNU within WP1. Single cylinder engine has been installed on a test trolley, coupled with AC motor and adjusted to work with diesel, common rail injector (DI) and a gasoline direct injection injector (GDI). The engine cylinder head was […]
