Final Report - GREEN (Green Heavy Duty Engine)

Project ID: 516195
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the GREEN project, which aimed to perform research leading to subsystems for a heavy-duty powertrain based on the intelligent integration of a new engine concept, characterised by:
- flexible components;
- an improved combustion process;
- models for a model based closed loop emission control;
- high power density;
- integrated exhaust after-treatment system with good reliability at low load in wide range of operating conditions;
- on a competitive cost base;
- with the highest fuel conversion efficiency of the diesel cycle;
- near-zero real world pollutant emissions and significant reduction of CO2.

The report offers information on the project's vision, objectives and methodology as well as the results and impact on the industry. It later describes the specific objectives, the work performed and the results obtained for each of the sub-projects that constituted the project's structure. Finally, there is a presentation of the knowledge dissemination plan.
