Decarbonising the transport sector with renewable hydrogen

The transport sector has about 25% contribution to the total produced CO2 emissions globally. Reciprocating engines are currently the major driver of this sector and will remain so in the foreseeable future. One pathway to decarbonise the transport sector is using clean fuels such as hydrogen. This zero-CO2 emission fuel is even more attractive when it is produced using renewable energy. One issue with burning hydrogen in reciprocating engines is that hydrogen has very different properties to conventional fuels, so could severely impact engine performance. The aim of this internship is to address this challenge through an experimental study on hydrogen behaviour in the Cooperative Fuels Research (CFR) engine.
