The Institute of Internal Combustion
Engines and Thermodynamics
at Graz University of Technology
is carrying out extensive
research in the area of Hydrogen
Direct Injection in a close cooperation
with BMW Munich. With
new markets such as China or India
joining the “automobile
world” and thus with a significant
increase in the number of cars on
the road, the sustainability of future
mobility scenarios conserving
the world’s finite fossil energy
reserves and protecting the environment
is becoming increasingly
environment, for example
through the greenhouse effect
with CO2 emissions. Precisely this
is the reason why many see and
acknowledge hydrogen as the
source of energy supply in future.
The idea to use hydrogen as a
fuel for IC engines is almost as old
as the internal combustion engine
itself 1. Many investigations
concerning hydrogen combustion
engines have been carried out, although
further research is necessary
in order to fully utilize the
potential of hydrogen powered IC
engines.
