Ethanol-fuelled diesel engine


Technology Description

Specifically applied to heavy duty tracking that can use bioethanol, ED95 engines can be fuelled by 95% ethanol and 5% additives (including ignition improvers). They are adapted diesel engines with high compression ratios, which are required to ignite the fuel. A dedicated injection system is also needed, to compensate for the lower energy density of ethanol.

Relevance for Net Zero

Native spark ignition engines with high compression ratios could attain better results in terms of efficiency and pollutant emissions, and present an alternative to compression ignition (diesel) engines. Ethanol is currently the cheapest biofuel available and is the biofuel that is produced in the highest volumes, globally. Its use in diesel engines does not require major changes to truck production lines.
