The Effects of 2-Ethylhexyl Nitrate and Di-Tertiary-Butyl Peroxide on the Exhaust Emissions from a Heavy-Duty Diesel Engine 1999-01-1478

The effects of the cetane improvers* 2-ethylhexyl nitrate (EHN) and di-tertiary-butyl peroxide (DTBP) on regulated exhaust emissions from a 1993 Detroit Diesel Series 60 heavy-duty diesel engine were studied. EHN and DTBP were added to two commercially available fuels at concentrations ranging from 500 to 12,000 ppm by volume. Both additives reduced CO, NOx, and particulate emissions as measured in the hot start portion of the FTP heavy-duty transient emissions cycle. A comparison of the emissions response of the two additives shows that the nitrogen in EHN does not contribute to NOx emissions at typical treat rates.
