Emissions Reduction Using Hydrogen from Plasmatron Fuel Converters

Today, pollution is a major danger to the Environment. Vehicular exhaust is responsible for the pollution. PLASMATRON fuel converter technology is the new technique that reduces the concentration levels of emissions.

Engineers have added hydrogen to gasoline to make an engine run cleaner and efficiently. It is suitable for fuel pretreatment and for exhaust after-treatment applications. The Emission control methods are Fuel pre-treatment and Exhaust after-treatment. The Plasmatron fuel converters are Thermal type and Low current type.

This EMISSIONS REDUCTION USING HYDROGEN FROM PLASMATRON FUEL CONVERTERS project describes a block diagram of Diesel Engine Emissions Aftertreatment Concept which is explained in two ways, normal operation and regeneration. In normal operation, the oxygen rich is exhausted from engine which is absorbed by the catalyst and that cleans the exhaust. But in regeneration, there is a plasmatron reformer which is a diesel fuel. It is rich with hydrogen gas to have clean exhaust.

The energy given by the plasma facilitates partial oxidation reactions with negligible soot production. Under ideal stoichiometric conditions, the partial oxidation reaction is given by CnHm + n/2 O2 nCO +m/2 H2. It gives continuous ignition at the entrance of the fuel in the gasification of fuel.

 It increases gasoline engine efficiency by 20 to 25%. It potentially reduces U.S. oil imports by 1.5 million barrels per day. It also reduces diesel engine which exhaust emissions by 90%. It needs modest engine modifications with no major redesign of the vehicle.


This project concludes about the pollution which is a major threat to the Environment today. So PLASMATRON fuel technology decreases the concentration levels of the emissions.
