HDGAS - Heavy Duty Gas Engines integrated into Vehicles

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The challenge is the development of advanced non-hybrid powertrain concepts for heavy duty vehicles (either dual-fuel or optimised for pure natural gas operation), complying with Euro VI emissions standards and meeting the CO2 or greenhouse gas emissions targets currently under definition. This will deliver significant air quality improvements, particularly in terms of particle numbers and NOx in real driving conditions, and will reduce the contribution of heavy duty vehicles to climate change.

The overall objective of the HDGAS project is to develop, demonstrate and optimize advanced powertrain concepts for dual-fuel and for pure natural gas operation engines, perform integration thereof into heavy duty vehicles and confirm achievement of Euro VI emissions standards, in-use compliance under real-world driving conditions and CO2 or greenhouse gas targets currently under definition.
