Title: CARONACEOUS PARTICULATE EMISSION REDTIONS OBTAINED BY A CATALYTICALLY ENHANCED DIESEL ENGINE
Agency: EPA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $150,000.00
 

Abstract:

PARTICULATE EMISSIONS BY DIESEL ENGINES ARE A SERIOUS HEALTHHAZARD AND HAVE BEEN THE FOCUS OF RECENT EPA RULEMAKING RESTRICTING EMISSIONS BY LARGER DIESEL VEHICLE ENGINES. AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY AND ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS HAVE RESTRICTED USEFUL DECISIONS ON HOW MUCH TO RESTRICT PERMIS SIBLE PARTICULATE EMISSION LEVELS. WILLIAM C. PFEFFERLE ASSOCIATES (WCP) HAS INVENTED A PROPRIETARY CATALYTICALLY- ENHANCED MODIFICATION OF A DIESEL ENGINE WHICH SHOWS A NUMBER OF PROMISING FEATURES, INCLUDING A POTENTIALLY 99% REDUCTION IN CARBONACEOUS PARTICULATE EMISSIONS. USING CATALYSTS PLACED PERMANENTLY IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBERS OF ADIESEL ENGINE, WCP HAS DEMONSTRATED RAPID OTTO-CYCLE COMBUSTION OF DIESEL FUEL TOGETHER WITH REDUCED NOISE AND A CHAMBER CLEAN OF VISIBLE SOOT. WCP BELIEVES THIS ENGINE WILLPRODUCE LOWER PARTICULATE EMISSIONS THAN CURRENTLY-SCHEDULEDEPA STANDARDS WITHOUT THE NEED FOR TRAP-OXIDIZERS OR OTHER EXHAUST GAS TREATMENT. THIS PHASE I STUDY WILL CONDUCT FEASIBILITY EXPERIMENTS TO EVALUATE THIS CATALYTIC DIESEL ENGINE TECHNOLOGY FOR ITS ABILITY TO REDUCE PARTICULATE EMISSIONS WITHOUT AN INCREASE IN NOX OUTPUT.
