Influence of bioethanol fuels treatment for operational performance, ecological properties and GHG emissions of spark ignition engine - Biotreth

The project will provide knowledge about the impact of ethanol blending in gasoline. Vestlandsforsking will be responsible for work package 6 which is the assessment of the consequences of exhaust toxicity and greenhouse gas emissions. For emissions of greenhouse gases will be completed life cycle assessment (LCA). The toxicological consequences will be considered by literature studies and molecular dynamic simulations.
