TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS
MAN's Copenhagen Engine Research Center is readying for full-scale testing of its ammonia-fueled
engine in 2023, followed by commercial delivery in 2024.
in the world, but no one is really using it
as a fuel yet, " he said. Ammonia reacts
chemically with water when spilled, producing
ammonium hydroxide that is toxic
and caustic, but it will rapidly dissipate.
Its flammability/explosion risk is low.
From an engineering perspective,
double-walled fuel lines with an interstitial
purge gas typically are required for
safety considerations. " Because of its
toxicity, because you need respirators
for safe handling, I think marine and
maybe agriculture are the only areas
you're going to see this as a fuel. This is
not going to be an on-road transportation
fuel for cars and trucks, " Kaul said.
Here and now
Although the WCX 2022 panel's emphasis
was on alternative fuels, possible
improvements for existing " conventional "
fuels weren't omitted. Shailesh
Lopes, senior fuels engineer at General
Motors, presented compelling figures
for the potential hydrocarbon and oxides
of nitrogen (NOx) reduction of improving
the quality of diesel fuel. Lopes
said diesel cetane numbers of less than
40 result in high emissions, while cetane
numbers of 50 or better can deliver
a significant emissions reduction.
Lopes advocated for " desired " diesel-fuel
properties of 15% or less aromatics
content and a cetane rating of
55 or better. He said such properties
also can reduce the constituency of
harmful metals in the fuel that can accelerate
degradation of aftertreatment
systems. " Vehicles and fuels are a system, "
he asserted.
