GASIFICATION OF DIESEL FUEL FOR A LOW-EMISSION, HIGH-EFFICIENCY ENGINE SYSTEM
This paper presents the concept of gasified diesel fuel as a potential solution to the diesel engine emissions problem, especially the particulates. The concept employs two-stage combustion. Results of the analysis indicate up to 10 percent improvement in overall system efficiency over conventional diesel engines. Experiments on a catalytic gasifier show that complete gasification of diesel fuel is possible without soot or particulate formation.
