Multi-fuel combustion: development of a diagnostic tool for carbon-neutral combustion

Project Details


Promotion of 'renewable energy' and 'electrification' is a highly contemporary topic in achieving current climate targets. Actions, at all levels of energy systems, need to be taken with a fast pace. Importantly, high-load combustion engines will have an essential role as energy converters. According to the 'High-Level Panel of the European Decarbonisation Pathways Initiative', development of clean combustion technology is an important step towards greenhouse gases reduction. This research utilizes numerical fluid and chemistry simulation methods to speed up the process of using alcohol-based fuels, such as methanol and ethanol as well as hydrogen as sustainable and clean fuels in the transportation sector. Development of theoretical analysis tools in this project facilitates understanding of the complex processes in modern engines in order to expedite meeting the ambitious climate goals over the following years.
