Description:

The U.S. EPA's Office of Research and Development operates the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program to facilitate the deployment of innovative technologies through performance verification and information dissemination. Congress funds ETV in response to the belief that there are many viable environmental technologies that are not being used for the lack of credible third-party performance data. With performance data developed under this program, technology buyers, financiers, and permitters in the United States and abroad will be better equipped to make informed decisions regarding environmental technology purchase and use. The Air Pollution Control Technology (APCT) Center is one of six verification organizations operating under the ETV program, and Diesel engine modifications to reduce emissions is one of the technologies under the purview of APTC. The report describes performance verification tests of Clean Clear Fuel Technologies, Inc.’s Universal Fuel Cell on a 1998 Detroit Diesel Corporation Series 60 engine burning low sulfur Diesel fuel. Emissions of particulate matter were 0.0776 g/bhp-h for engine operation without the fuel cell, 0.0819 g/bhp-h for engine operation with a degreened fuel cell, and 0.0904 g/bhp-h for engine operation with an aged fuel cell. Emissions of nitrogen oxides were 4.10 g/bhp-h for engine operation without the fuel cell, 4.16 g/bhp-h for engine operation with a degreened fuel cell, and 4.10 g/bhp-h for engine operation with an aged fuel cell. Emissions of total hydrocarbons were 0.168 g/bhp-h for engine operation without the fuel cell, 0.177 g/bhp-h for engine operation with a degreened fuel cell, and 0.237 g/bhp-h for engine operation with an aged fuel cell. Emissions of carbon monoxide were 1.33 g/bhp-h for engine operation without the fuel cell, 1.36 g/bhp-h for engine operation with a degreened fuel cell, and 1.43 g/bhp-h for engine operation with an aged fuel cell. Emissions of carbon dioxide were 583 g/bhp-h for engine operation without the fuel cell, 584 g/bhp-h for engine operation with a degreened fuel cell, and 581 g/bhp-h for engine operation with an aged fuel cell.
