Biogenous Ethers – Production, Operation In A Diesel Engine

Biofuels from lignocellulose can significantly contribute to the greenhouse gas emissions reduction of the transport sector. Oxygenated fuels like Di-n-butyl ether and oxymethylene ethers are among the most promising alternatives for diesel engines. The suitability of these compounds is investigated in a research project conducted at the Institute for Powertrains and Automotive Technology at Vienna University of Technology and the Institute of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology at Graz University of Technology. The fuels show CO2 saving potential by up to 70 % and remarkable soot reduction properties.
