Abstract

By comparison of a diesel engine and a nitric acid plant, a new process was modeled, in which a downscaled nitric acid process was incorporated in a diesel engine. Here, the properties of the raw materials were compared, and it was concluded that the project is possible if a catalyst can be found which allows for a satisfactory reaction rate and conversion for ammonia to NO2 under the harsh conditions it would be subjected to. In order to implement this system into a moving vehicle, more attention would have to be spent to energy recovery techniques as the energy content of ammonia is significantly lower than that of diesel.
