NEW DIESEL ENGINE DEVELOPMENT FOR THE USE OF VEGETABLE OIL AS A FUEL
The Elsbett-Institut is dealing with the development and improvement of the diesel engine heat balance in passenger car and lorry engines. This includes making the engines suitable for several different fuels. A diesel engine that operates on the Duotherm combination process is presented. It is distinguished, for instance, by the fact that it can be run on vegetable oils of the most varied kinds. The engine design, the combustion process, and its performance by comparison with comparable Otto and diesel engines are presented. Emphasis is placed on its ecological 'cleanliness' compared with engines that run on mineral oil. At the same time, it is pointed out that the arid areas in North Africa would be ideally suitable for supplying the vegetable oil required for this engine type.
