The Fuel Processor for Accelerated Catalyst Light-Off and Engine-Independent Active Regeneration Measures 2008-01-0068

Active engine-based measures are currently used to assist the exhaust aftertreatment. This paper presents the current predevelopment of a system for active exhaust aftertreatment of diesel engines which enables exhaust aftertreatment to be decoupled from engine-based measures. At the heart of the system, the Fuel Processor is the active component which is used to combust, reactively evaporate or partially oxidise the fuel, as required. Active catalytic converter heating, active particulate filter regeneration or heating of a SCR catalytic converter are possible without engine-based measures.
