EcoDual Investigating Advancements for Diesel-Natural Gas Engines

EcoDual Inc., a company that provides dual-fuel natural gas conversion systems for heavy-duty diesel trucks, is partnering with the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) to examine potential technology advancements for dual-fuel applications.

The organizations will look into the challenges associated with optimizing natural gas use in new diesel engines under development by OEMs, as well as research strategies to develop clean combustion engines that will minimize the need for exhaust after-treatments.

‘This new research relationship with EcoDual is very exciting for us and will unlock the full potential of this technology, including the possibilities to make engines run cleaner,” says Zoran Filipi, Timken endowed chair in vehicle system design at CU-ICAR.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently approved the first EcoDual conversion systems for the 15-liter Cummins ISX. Development is underway for additional Cummins and Detroit Diesel heavy-duty engines, the company says.
