The origin and fate of organic pollutants from the combustion of alternative fuels: Phase 3 report. Final report, May 1, 1995--April 30, 1996

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The overall objective of this project is to determine the impact of alternative fuels on air quality, particularly ozone formation. This objective will be met through steps: qualitative identification of alternative fuel combustion products; quantitative measurement of specific emission levels of these products; and determination of the fate of the combustion products in the atmosphere, particularly in terms of depletion or conversion by hydroxyl (OH) radical attack. The alternative fuels of interest are methanol, ethanol, natural gas, and liquefied petroleum gas. The role of the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) in this project is twofold. first, fused silica flow ... continued below

Description

The overall objective of this project is to determine the impact of alternative fuels on air quality, particularly ozone formation. This objective will be met through steps: qualitative identification of alternative fuel combustion products; quantitative measurement of specific emission levels of these products; and determination of the fate of the combustion products in the atmosphere, particularly in terms of depletion or conversion by hydroxyl (OH) radical attack. The alternative fuels of interest are methanol, ethanol, natural gas, and liquefied petroleum gas. The role of the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) in this project is twofold. first, fused silica flow reactor instrumentation is being used to obtain both qualitative identification and quantitative emissions data on the thermal degradation products from the fuel-lean (oxidative), stoichiometric, and fuel-rich (pyrolytic) decomposition of methanol, ethanol,natural gas, and LP gas. Second, a laser photolysis/laser- induced fluorescence apparatus is being used to determine the rates and mechanisms of reaction of selected degradation products under atmospheric and combustion conditions. This draft final report contains the results of the third year of the study.
