Next generation methanol engines (WP6)


Work Package 6 mission is to develop the next generation of methanol engines, that fully exploit methanol’s beneficial properties as an engine fuel, for increased efficiency and even lower emissions.

Objectives:

  • To develop the MD95 engine concept used in the WP3 demo, to an MD100 concept
  • To map the potential of a medium speed, spark ignition engine on M100: achievable load range, evaluation of PFI and DI
  • To provide recommendations on which methanol engine concepts to invest in for market introduction
