FLEET TEST WITH 32 ETHANOL PROPELLED BUSES IN INNER CITY SERVICE IN STOCKHOLM

FLOTTFOERSOEK MED 32 ETANOLBUSSAR VID AB STORSTOCKHOLMS LOKALTRAFIK

The aim of the project was to create the basis for a decision regarding the future of large scale introduction of ethanol propelled buses. The following factors were included: (1) to gather and evaluate data from exhaust gas emissions; (2) to gather operational experience; (3) to determine the ageing factors of the systems; (4) to enhance qualities and knowledge concerning the engines, the fuel and the catalysts; and (5) to solve the problems with undesired odour from the exhaust. 32 ethanol propelled buses equipped with catalysts were included in the project. The buses were used in regular inner-city traffic during three years. Reliability of the technology was evaluated. Extensive exhaust emission measurements have also been carried out together with tests of different catalysts and ignition improvers.
