Heavy duty diesel whole space combustion

Objective

The purpose of the "Hy-SPACE" project is to research and develop a new homogenous combustion process (HCCI) for heavy-duty trucks and bus diesel engine. The innovative combination of several engine and injection technologies will be investigated and implemented on multi cylinder engine concepts up to the final economic and technical assessment of the in-vehicle on the road potential. The main technical objectives are to meet EURO 5 emissions limits without sophisticated and fuel sensitive after treatment for NOx and/or particulates emissions while maintaining the low well to wheel CO2 emissions advantage of the best state of the art HD diesel engines.
