Top Ten Blendstocks For Turbocharged GasolineEngines

Bio-blendstocksWith Potential to Deliver the for Highest Engine Efficiency

Highlights of the Report:

  • A tiered process efficiently and effectively screened hundreds of blendstocks.
  • Ten blendstocks were identified with the potential to increase engine efficiency by 10 percent using the efficiency merit function.
    • i-ButanoloCyclopentanone
    • Di-isobutylene
    • EthanoloFuran mixture
    • Fusel alcohol mixture
    • Methanol
    • Prenol
    • i-Propanol
    • n-Propanol
  • Six of the blendstocks were determined to have the fewest barriers to adoption and use.
  • The blendstocks all have the potential to reduce life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions by at least 60 percent.
  • The top 10 blendstocks were all determined to have the potential to be produced at a competitive cost.
  • Co-Optima researchers identified barriers to adoption and key research gaps to be addressed in future research
