In a joint research project, MOVE GmbH, Groschopp AG and OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH were able to improve the electrical efficiency of a combined heat and power plant (CHP), thereby improving its economic efficiency.
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.
