FUELS EMISSIONS ENGINES
The Center for Diesel Research and the Power and Propulsion Laboratory reside within the University of Minnestota's Department of Mechanical Engineering. These labs specialize in measuring engine emissions with a focus on nontraditional particulate emissions measurements. These measurements include metrics such as the particle number concentration, size distribution and surface area. Research topics have included the effect of dulution systems, fuels, lube oils and aftertreatment systems of particulate emissions. Please use the links to the left to learn more about the Center.
A current area of significant reaserch focus is on DME, a potential key future renewable fuel. Read more about our DME program here.
A related current research project is on Biofuels for the Farm. Read more about this research here.
