 Workpackage 7: Emission reduction methods (Internal-EGR)
 

AIM: to optimise the use of exhaust gas recirculation for NOx reduction and its effects on particulate emission for heavy fuel engines.

Objectives:

  • To investigate the viability of using (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) EGR in marine engines operating on different fuel qualities
  • To design prototype EGR systems for selected fuel qualities for two and four stroke engines and test the prototype systems in laboratory
  • Characterisation of particulate emissions from marine engines
  • Identification of influence of operating conditions and parameters as well as of fuel quality on particulates


The Workpackage consists of two Tasks:


Task 7.1: Internal Measures

Task 7.2: Emission reduction methods (external exhaust gas recirculation and particulates)
