The joint project "TEME2030+" is identifying technical solutions that will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of current and future maritime gas engines by 35% compared with today's levels. The research work aims to develop basic concepts to meet future emission and climate targets in the international shipping industry.
Besides FVTR GmbH as project coordinator, the consortium consists of seven other partners from industry and science. At the Chair of Piston Engines and Internal Combustion Engines (LKV) of the University of Rostock, the largest single-cylinder research engine at a European university is available for the research. Here, novel dual-fuel combustion processes with methane and hydrogen are to be developed. Of particular interest is the reduction of methane slip through direct injection of the gas.
For this purpose, FVTR GmbH is developing a methane slip model to predict CH4 emissions. With this model, operating parameters with positive effects on the methane slip can already be identified on the PC, and thus the experimental effort and the associated costs can be significantly reduced. Finally, the methane slip model can be integrated as a plug-in into standard industry software.
