It is well known that vehicle exhaust emissions are harmful gases such as CO (carbon monoxide), HC-NOx (hydrocarbon zhi and nitrogen oxides), daoPM (particles, carbon fumes) emitted from vehicle waste gas. Researchers at The University of Technology in Valencia, Spain, have designed a new internal combustion engine that does not produce carbon dioxide (CO2) or other gases harmful to human health,media reported.
According to reports, the technology is based on MIEC ceramic film, by UPV and CSIC (Spain’s Supreme Scientific Research Council) mixed center – the Institute of Chemical Technology patented. These films remove and liquefy contaminated and harmful gases such as nitrogen oxide NOx.
“These films, which are contained in vehicle engines, selectively separate oxygen from the air, producing only water and carbon dioxide,” said Jos? Manuel Serra, a researcher at UPV and CSIC. “
The researchers also say the carbon dioxide produced by the engine is compressed and stored in pressure tanks that can be used in service stations and industrial applications. As a result, there is a fuel tank inside the car and a carbon dioxide storage tank, which can store the carbon dioxide produced by combustion after the fuel is burned.
“The technology is aimed primarily at large vehicle manufacturers that transport passengers and cargo on land and at sea, as well as aviation tool manufacturers that have reached a certain level of power, while also converting existing diesel engine vehicles into special vehicles.” As for small cars, the technology could also be used by isolating some of the carbon dioxide in the exhaust pipe, the researchers said.
It is worth mentioning that this transformative engine is compliant with 2040 emissions regulations and is highly efficient.
The research project has now been funded by the Valencian Innovation Authority, with the first two engine prototypes to be available in the coming months.
