Possible Short-Term Introduction of Hydrogen as Vehicle Fuel / Fuel Additive

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The infrastructure for natural gas distribution can provide the possibility of an evolutionary as opposed to revolutionary introduction of hydrogen as an additive to natural gas (Hythane). In this study, pure natural gas and a hythane blend with 24.8% (vol.) hydrogen have been used to fuel a multi-cylinder heavy-duty natural gas engine.. Some comparisons with pure hydrogen operation are also presented which indicate severely limited load range due to excessive burn rate causing high heat losses. Hythane increases efficiency, reduces CO2 emission and improves the HC-NOX trade-off.
