Bio-Ethanol engine for Advanced Urban Transport by Light Commercial Vehicle & Heavy DutY (BEAUTY)
FP7 Project with U.S. partner
Short name and number
Transport (including aeronautics)
The dedicated internal combustion engines considered in the proposal can be fuelled with pure bioethanol or its blends with hydrocarbon-based fuel; their application is intended for light commercials and heavy duty busses and trucks (e.g.: garbage trucks) on captive fleets, then allowing a much higher amplitude of adaptation of bioethanol blends to the need of the combustion process. Three technology ways will be explored.
