Abstract

This study presents emission results measured with renewable and synthetic diesel fuels. Three engines and five city buses were studied. The efficiency of diesel oxidation catalyst combined to particle oxidation catalyst (POCr) was measured with two engines. The studied diesel fuels were EN590, FAME, HVO and GTL. In most cases all regulated emissions decreased with HVO and GTL fuels compared to conventional EN590 diesel fuel. With FAME, the NOx emissions were higher compared to EN590, but other emissions were reduced. Alternative fuels had a positive effect on emissions, which are considered harmful to human health.
