Fuel Quality Analysis for Biogas Utilization in Heavy Duty Dual Fuel Engines

A. Alamia, H. Thunman & I. Magnusson
Natural gas (NG) and subsequently synthetic natural gas (SNG) are expected to increase their share of the market in the heavy transportation sector. In response to this trend engine suppliers need to develop engines for various fuels of both fossil and renewable origin. One possibility is Dual Fuel engines (DF), which uses a Diesel pilot to ignite a gas mixture. To obtain significant share of biofuels, gasification of raw solid biomass to gas isa key...
