  • Engine detonation with bioethanol cavitation

    Bioethanol is an alcohol of an organic origin which receives from a sugar ferment reaction. In the process of ethanol formation, starch from grains of plants turns in simple sugar in reaction with enzymes. Natural sugar ferments with yeast and form a mix of alcohol, water and unfermented remains. Alcohol is separated from a mix in distillation capacities and additionally clears in rectifying ...

  • Externalities in North–South technology transfer: the case of CNG engines in Iran

    This contribution focuses on illuminating the challenges and difficulties of North–South technology transfer. The central message of this paper is that North–South technology transfer is not simply a contract between two transacting firms and does not depend only on intra–firm and inter–firm factors. The process may also be influenced by a number of external factors, beyond the control or power ...

  • Gas Engineers Will Require CPA1 From 1st April 2012

    Gas Engineers Will Require CPA1 From 1st April 2012 Why do I need this? The Gas Safe Register announced a year ago that all registered gas engineers who have or due to gain ACS modules CEN1 or HTR1 now require the flue gas analyser qualification CPA1. From April 2012, gas engineers who do not hold the CPA1 will have their CEN1 and/or HTR1 suspended. ...

  • Want a better way to power your car? It`s a breeze

    Legendary Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens is half right. We do need to harness this country's wind resources for a homegrown source of electricity, as he has been urging this summer in expensive television ads. And we do need to reduce the $700 billion we may soon be paying annually for imported oil. But part two of Pickens's plan--to move natural gas out of electricity production and use it to ...

  • Effect of Biodiesel Fuels on Pollutant Emissions from EURO 3 LD Diesel Vehicles

    Transport is a key factor in modern economies. However, the EU transport system is currently not sustainable, and in many respects moving away from sustainability rather than towards it. The European Environment Agency highlights in particular the sector's growing CO2 emissions that threaten the EU meeting its target under the Kyoto protocol. Transport also represents a key challenge to ...


  • Taking Control of Gas Engine Issues

    In an effort to gain maximum engine performance and stay within the local exhaust emission limits over a wide range of engine load and ambient conditions, operators at the County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County’s Joint Water Pollution Control Plant wastewater treatment plant near downtown Los Angeles have installed Continental Controls Corp. ECV5 ...

  • Can a gas engine use diesel fuel with less pollution?

    Anyone concerned with rising oil prices and pollution from fossil fuel might like to know about a new technology, which addresses both problems. Its application will put an end to the days of sooty smoke seen from accelerating diesel trucks and buses. The ...


  • Development of Pre-Turbo Catalyst for Natural Gas Engines

    Distributed power generation is an efficient method for reducing CO2 emissions through the elimination of transmission losses. Co-generation has similar benefits with higher thermal efficiency. Natural gas engines are very popular for these applications. Unfortunately, these engines emit significant levels of methane, ...
