Minimizing ammonia fuel emissions

New simulations indicate that swirling ammonia in combustion chambers can help reduce harmful emissions – insight that may help on-going efforts to develop ammonia as a carbon-free fuel source.

Scientists reduce harmful emissions from HPPs

A team of scientists from Siberian Federal University (SFU) and their colleagues from Novosibirsk and the Netherlands modeled the process of coal burning in HPP boilers and determined which type of fuel produced less harmful ...

Fuel aerosols reducing pollution of the environment

A resource-efficient technology for the production of fuel aerosols has been developed at Tomsk Polytechnic University. The development can be used to quickly ignite the boilers of thermal power plants and boiler houses, ...

Lasers measure jet disintegration

There are many processes, such as propulsion, in which fluid in a supercritical state, where the temperature and pressure put a substance beyond a distinguishable liquid or gas phase, is injected in an environment of supercritical ...

New sensor could prolong the lifespan of high-temperature engines

A temperature sensor developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge could improve the efficiency, control and safety of high-temperature engines. The sensor minimises drift –degradation of the sensor which results ...

Researchers explore advantages of ported shroud turbochargers

(Phys.org) —The federal government wants more fuel-efficient vehicles on the country's highways and back roads, which often comes at the cost of reduced engine size and power. That can be hard to reconcile with a population ...
