Ammonia-Gasoline and Ammonia-Ethanol Engines
The Ammonia Engine Research group in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan is characterizing ammonia-gasoline and ammonia-ethanol combustion in spark ignited engines for use in passenger car applications.
Engine performance, efficiency, and emissions are being studied using a single cylinder research engine. A light pickup truck ammonia-gasoline demonstration vehicle has also been built and driven from Detroit to San Francisco (see: NH3 Car).
