Project description

Demand for diesel engines with higher capacities and increasingly stringent emissions are the direct cause of the start of this project. The overall project includes the acquisition of knowledge and its application about low emission engines and designing a new "near zero emission" diesel The overall objective of the IWT R & D project is twofold: - Acquire knowledge and apply it to the current existing DZ engine with a view to drastically reducing emissions and lowering the brandstofvebruik. - Developing a new engine: concept, calculation, testing and documentation
