Copper Fuel Additives as a Part of a Particulate Emmission Control Strategy 901619
The use of a copper diesel fuel additive in an emission control system improves particulate oxidation. This expands the operability of available systems by reducing the particulate mass loading and related external energy consumption required during regeneration. Easier, more frequent regenerations improve overall engine/system efficiency and reduce thermal stress on filtration media.
Procedures for optimizing additive use are presented. In addition, the results from a health study are reviewed.
