CDT Tests Emissions-reduction Capabilities of Biodiesel Blend.
According to CDT, the new biodiesel formulation is a blend of No. 1D commercial pipeline-grade kerosene and 20 percent biodiesel, together with the company's patented Platinum Plus fuel-borne catalyst.
"This blend actually beat a commercial ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel (ULSD) in reducing particulate matter (PM), NOx and CO, and was close to the performance of ULSD in reducing hydrocarbon emissions," said CDT president and COO James Valentine.
The company also noted that the biodiesel "enhances the lubricity of the No. 1D, and the No. 1D helps improve the cold-weather performance of the biodiesel."
Tested at SwRI in conjunction with a new catalyzed wire-mesh filter (CWMF), CDT said the biodiesel blend reduced PM, HC and CO by more than 75 percent, with NOx reduced by five percent.
