Standards and Protocols Development
The EECL is working with many groups including the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA), the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Berkeley Air, Phillips, and Envirofit International of testing protocols and standards for biomass stoves.
Engine Emissions Testing of Straight Vegetable Oil
The goal of this project is to test locally grown Soybean, Canola, and Camelina sunflower oils and their biodiesels in a DI engine for 200 hours to test engine longevity, emissions and performance. Funded by the Governor’s Energy Office Supercluster Clean Energy Grant.
Laser Ignition of Engines
Focused beams from pulsed lasers can be used to form plasmas (sparks) and ignite combustible mixtures. The technology is of interest for a range of applications including stationary reciprocating engines, ground-based and aero-turbines, and vehicles. For stationary engines, laser ignition can allow ignition of very lean mixtures, which reduces pollutant emissions, and high pressures, which provides improved engine efficiency.
