Hydrogen Injection System Evaluation

Adding hydrogen to the intake stream in a commercial truck diesel engine can reduce the vehicle’s CO2 emissions. Combining hydrogen available from industrial waste processes with a low cost and robust fuelling system offers a near-term, economically attractive approach to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from commercial trucking. To support the development of this technology, SFU and Hydra Energy are partnering to investigate the performance and longevity of hydrogen fuel injection hardware. The work will make use of existing facilities at SFU to evaluate the performance of new, in-service, and end-of-life fuel injectors. The findings from this study will help to guide the development of new control strategies that can account for changes in hydrogen fuelling quantity over the life of the injection systems.
