Abstract

Blending diesel fuel with 1,4 dioxane has resulted in a 25% reduction in carbon monoxide emissions during testing of a single cylinder diesel engine. This result was achieved with a 1% mass percentage blend of diesel and 1,4 dioxane, although it also caused increases in corresponding CO2, NO and NOx emissions. Hence as global concerns surrounding continued use of fossil fuels, and in particular diesel, for road transport in order to mitigate climate change and human health impacts, the ready use of additives with diesel fuel could help ease the transition to a sustainable clean and alternative fuelled vehicle future. The use of such fuel blends needs to be environmentally beneficial as well easy to deliver, ideally requiring zero engine/vehicle modifications. This paper evidences one ready mechanism to achieve notable CO reduction however has led to ongoing study to address corresponding rises in related emission products.
legislated as a 100% reduction in greenhouse gases (GHGs) from 1990 and should cover all sectors of the economy, including international aviation and shipping”[4]. Currently the UK Government is committed to the phase out of sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2040, and this has focussed efforts to explore and deliver rapid clean and alternative fuelled vehicle technologies.
