Joint study on emission control of methane and formaldehyde from gasoline, diesel and natural gas engines published by the Fuels, Engine and Emissions Research Center (FEERC), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), USA, and the Exhaust-Gas Center Karlsruhe, ITCP (KIT) in Appl. Catal. B: Env. 15.01.2020.
The FVV project „AdBlue Deposits“ investigated the interaction of AdBlue sprays with hot tail pipe walls, the resulting wall film formation and the precipitation of solid deposits from liquid film. Besides experimental investigations, new models for urea decomposition, spray/wall interaction, heat transfer and an approach to substantially speed-up 3D-CFD simulations were developed. The work was supported from 01/2017 – 04/2019 by BMWi through the AiF based on a decision by the German Bundestag. 13.01.2020
An internal combustion engine can be used as CO2 sink instead of being a CO2 producer. These findings by H. Gossler from our group and colleagues from the group of U. Maas are now published in Combust. & Flame and open promising routes for the reduction of green-house gas emissions. 20.06.2019
Winfried Kretschmann, Minister President of Baden-Württemberg, visited MethQuest booth at the 11. National Maritime Conference in Friedrichshafen. The objective of the MethQuest project is to drive the energy revolution with renewable methane. Within MethQuest, our group develops high-temperature electrolysis cells for a very efficient power-to-gas technology. 22.05.2019
Olaf Deutschmann served as an expert of the National Academy of Sciences, Leopoldina, working on the statement "Saubere Luft: Stickstoffoxide und Feinstaub in der Atemluft:Grundlagen und Empfehlungen", which says: "The goal is a nationwide, interdepartmental strategy for air pollution control that considers nitrogen oxides and particulate matter as well as other pollutants and greenhouse gases from all sources". 30.04.2019
