Diesel fuel serves as a pilot for combustion that ignites under the heat of compression to produce substantially less nitrogen oxide and particulates than engines burning only diesel fuel without sacrificing diesel engine performance.
Clean Air Partners' existing Dual-Fuel systems use diesel fuel as a pilot for combustion that ignites under the heat of compression to produce substantially less NOx, CO2 and particulate emissions than engines burning 100 percent diesel fuel without sacrificing diesel-like performance.
In response to ever increasing legislative requirements and demands to reduce harmful emissions, CAP systems use diesel fuel as a pilot for combustion that ignites under the heat of compression to produce substantially less nitrous oxide and particulates than engines burning diesel alone without sacrificing diesel-like performance.
