The development of synthetic fuels from renewable sources, which as so-called e-fuels could make an important contribution to climate protection and lower pollutant emissions, has already reached a high level of technical maturity. Fuels that are compatible with existing and current engine technology and comply with applicable fuel standards have the best chances of being launched on the market in the near future.
A new no-harm application test for additives in fuels is to be developed by OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH and the Chair of Piston Machines and Internal Combustion Engines at the University of Rostock in a joint research project. The increasing use of new climate-friendly biogenic and synthetic fuels and fuel compositions will require a large number of new additives, which in turn will have to be subjected to conscientious testing in accordance with no-harm criteria.
A newly developed method makes it possible to determine the storage stability of middle distillates such as heating oil or diesel fuel. The method is based on a rapid procedure (BigOxy) combined with a sensor for online measurement of selected data. Using elevated temperature and pressure, the BigOxy method allows effects in fuels that would otherwise take months or years to show up, within hours to days.
Also this year OWI will present itself at the joint booth of the Forschungsgemeinschaft Industrieofenbau e.V. - FOGI at the THERMPROCESS in Düsseldorf. You will find us from 12 to 16.06.2023 in hall 9 at booth C42. Feel free to contact us in advance if you would like to make an appointment for a personal meeting at the fair!
In this research project, new methods for flame monitoring of hydrogen-rich gases in the context of industrial furnaces using thermoacoustic sensors will be developed and optimized by OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH in collaboration with the Chair of Gas and Heat Technology at the Technical University of Bergakademie Freiberg.
Climate-neutral, emission-free and highly efficient - this is what the power generation of the future could look like with a new generation of supercritical gas turbine power plants. The prerequisite is that they are operated with storable, renewable energy sources instead of natural gas and in the supercritical range, and that the CO2 required in the process is recycled.
The production of a low-emission, climate-neutral clean fuel in a direct production process is the overarching goal of the current EU research project E-TANDEM. In this project, an international consortium with the participation of OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH and TEC4FUELS GmbH is working on the efficient and direct production of a new, higher oxygenate diesel-like e-fuel (HOEF) for shipping and heavy-duty transport.
The production and use of a new climate-friendly diesel fuel from biogenic residual and waste materials are technically feasible and have been successfully demonstrated in the EU research project REDIFUEL.
For owners of oil heating systems who want to contribute to climate protection with renewable energies, greenhouse gas-reduced paraffinic heating oils are an option in addition to the integration of solar energy. But can a fresh, purely paraffinic heating oil be refueled on top of a residual quantity of mineral oil-based heating oil that has been stored for years?
