“We would like people to be recycling their fuel in the same way that they recycle other things”- Steve Oldham, CEO of Carbon Engineering
On January 9, 2019 Carbon Engineering (CE) announced the investment of Chevron Technology Ventures in CE’s technology called “direct air capture” (DAC). CE’s DAC technology refines carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and combines it with hydrogen from water to create gas or jet fuel. The DAC process reduces the impacts of climate change by using the Earth’s atmosphere as a way to recycle fuel.
Whether you’re considering buying a car with DEF or you have one already, you may have a lot of concerns about how convenient it is to fill up your vehicle. Fortunately, it’s a lot easier than many people think, and you can get good-quality fluid from a number of diesel exhaust fluid distributors. In case this is a concern of yours, it may help to look into a few pieces of false information that make their way around.
Efficiency is key to top engine performance, as new engines are being built to address fuel economy and emissions standards. To achieve efficiency and increased power, automakers began downsizing engines. Although efficiency was achieved, the performance of engines began to suffer. To offset the changes, automakers added turbochargers to the downsized engines to boost operating pressure. The reduction of engine size and the addition of turbochargers has led to the phenomenon of Low-Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI). LSPI is “an abnormal combustion event caused by higher in-cylinder pressures…while operating under low speed, high-torque conditions“.
Particle contamination can be harmful to equipment, as this often lead to equipment failure and money lost. No matter what industry you work in, construction, agriculture, manufacturing, etc., fighting particle contamination of lubricating oils should be a top priority.
