This stress test for fuels and components enables valid statements to be made about the behavior of the fuel in interaction with the materials using a comparatively simple test setup and in a relatively short time. The investigation serves both the quality assurance of the IDEALFUEL and the operational safety of the fuel-bearing components of engines.
The goal of the IDEALFUEL project is to develop the new technologies and processes from the current laboratory scale to pilot scale to demonstrate the performance and compatibility of bio-heavy fuel oil across the blending range in marine fuel systems and marine engines. In addition, IDEALFUEL will conduct an environmental impact assessment and life cycle analysis (LCA) to verify and demonstrate the soundness of the environmental, social and sustainability aspects of the developed technologies, processes, products, solutions and logistics.
