Using green-hydrogen and bioethanol fuels in internal combustion engines to reduce emissions
Air pollution is increasing globally, coupled with the downward trend in oil reserves. It is important to consider recent researches on renewable fuels such as bioethanol, bio-turbosine, biodiesel, green-hydrogen (gH(2)), among others, as viable options to help reduce the impact of the use and consumption of fossil fuels. In this work is analyzed the Greenhouse Gases production (GHG) by combustion of binary and ternary mixtures, in a 5500 W portable engine generator of alternating current; connecting to the generator three electric charges as a dynamic brake. It were measured the decrements in the production of CO, HC and NOx of up to 99%, 93% and 67%, respectively, as well as an increment in CO2 up to 35%; in addition, reduction in uptake fuel of more than 36%. Therefore, the reduction of GHG emissions will improve the quality of air in the cities, at the same time the quality of peoples health. (C) 2019 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC.
