  • Characterization and ecological risk assessment of nanoparticulate CeO2 as a diesel fuel catalyst

    Nanoparticulate cerium dioxide (nano‐CeO2), when combusted as an additive to diesel fuel, was transformed from 6 nm to 14 nm sizes into particles near 43 nm, with no obvious change in the unit cell dimensions or crystalline form. Cerium sulfate, if formed during combustion, was below detection limits. Ceria nanoparticles were agglomerated within the soot matrix, with a mean aerodynamic ...

  • Putting a Lid on Catalyst Issues

    While it is a given that emissions control technology must first and foremost remove harmful constituents from the engine exhaust gas stream, it is equally true that they must also be able to operate in the real world, where durability, reliability and serviceability are critical. It was with those facts in mind that DCL International Inc., the Concord, Ontario, Canada, supplier of advanced ...

  • Bio-Diesel- The alternate fuel for Indian Railways

    Global population explosion, rapid industrialization and greater human activities have been demanding more and more fuels/energy. On the other hand the reserve of fossil fuel is depleting day- by- day signaling a dark future for the mankind. In this scenario research in the field of renewable energy has increased. One such burning topic of the day is the production of “Bio-Diesel”. Bio-diesel is ...


  • Experimental investigations on diesel engine fuelled with methyl esters of cotton seed oil

    In this investigation, cotton seed methyl ester (CSME) was prepared by transesterification using potassium hydroxide (KOH) as catalyst. The engine performance was analysed with different blends of biodiesel and was compared with neat diesel. It was concluded that the lower blends of biodiesel are closer to diesel as far as thermal efficiency is concerned. In the lower blends, the brakes specific ...

  • Composition and textural properties of soot and study of their oxidative elimination by catalytic process

    Diesel soot and reference carbon black samples have been characterised by analysis of the organic compounds fraction and determination of textural characteristics (specific area). The potential to eliminate such carbonaceous particles has been investigated using a Cu/ZrO2 solid catalyst promoted by potassium additives. The reactivity of soot samples depends on the organic compounds content. In ...

  • 80-95% NOx Reduction SCR without the use of urea

    A new, patented catalyst developed by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory that can reliably and economically reduce between 95 percent and 100 percent of the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from diesel fueled engines has been licensed to Integrated Fuel Technologies, Inc. (IFT), a Kirkland, Wash.-based start-up company. IFT plans to integrate the ...


  • Exhaust Gas Treatments for NOx Reduction to Add to Global Warming

    The enforcement of year 2007 stringent emission norm for reduced NOx reduction/oxides of nitrogen gases from the diesel exhaust and the after treatment to reduce them will add to global warming by several fold according to renowned engine combustion kinetics, emission control process expert and inventor -Mr.Srinivasan Gopalakrishnan, Hydrodrive Systems & Controls Pvt.

  • Bio-oil upgraded by catalytic co-pyrolysis of sawdust with tyre

    We have investigated the improvement in the quality of bio-oils by catalytic co-pyrolysis of sawdust and tyre mixture in an integrated reactor. The vapours from co-pyrolysis are allowed to pass through a desulfurising layer composed of zinc oxide and then through the catalytic layer consisting of silver (Ag), palladium (Pd), molybdenum (Mo), or vanadium (V) supported over SBA-15 or HZSM-5. The ...

  • NOx in Non-Utility Industries - Part II - Control options and monitoring methodology

     This the second in a two-part series. Part I, which appeared in our June 2001 issue focuses on air emission origins of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in non-utility industries. Choice of the NOx control technology is dependent on many factors, including regulatory requirements, technical feasibility, cost and public perception. Figure 1, compiled based on publications [1-5], presents a summary of ...


  • Biodiesel Analysis with Mid Infrared - From Feedstock to Fuel

    Introduction The biofuels industry is growing rapidly and so is the need for analysis to ensure quality product. The parameters for quality biodiesel require different types of instruments and measurement systems, such as gas chromatographs (GC), titrators, centrifuges, infrared spectrometers...
