Methanol

View this topic in
Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol, wood alcohol, wood naphtha or wood spirits, is a chemical with the formula CH3OH (often abbreviated MeOH). It is the simplest alcohol, and is a light, volatile, colorless, flammable liquid with a distinctive odor very similar to, but slightly sweeter than, ethanol (drinking alcohol). At room temperature, it is a polar liquid, and is used as an antifreeze, solvent, fuel, and as a denaturant for ethanol. (Wikipedia.org)

  • Results Obtained by Methanol Fuelling Diesel Engine

    The control of diesel engine exhaust emissions (NOx and smoke) can be achieved using methanol as a single fuel or together with classic diesel fuel. The low value of methanol Cetane Number (CN≤5) makes autoignition difficult. This paper presents the experimental results obtained by providing two different methods of diesel fuel and methanol engine supplying. The first method consists in the methanol admission through a carburettor combined with the classic diesel fuel injection (dieselcarburettor D-C), and the second one refers to the separate fuels injection (double injection DMI). The experimental research related to the first fuelling method was carried out on two types of DI engines: the D 115 (multi-sprays) type and the D 2156 MTN 8 type (injected on the wall) The main goal is to analyse the exhaust emissions when the engine operates following the D-C method using the maximum possible methanol percentage substituting diesel fuel. Considering these, the power obtained for certain operating regimes is higher than that obtained for classic diesel engine D. From the exhaust emissions measurements resulted that the NOx levels can be significantly reduced for all the engine loads. Regarding the smoke, reduced levels were achieved only at high engine loads (>50%) although it is known that these smoke reduced levels are provided at low engine loads for D. The smoke level could mark a limitation for the methanol used quantity inside the engine’s cylinder.In order to increase even more the substitute methanol percentage, analysis were made on D 2156 MTN 8 engine type applying the second described fuelling method DMI. A model was issued for simulating the processes that develop inside the engine’s cylinder, presenting the heat release characteristics typical for the methanol combustion.

    With the vitality and economic growth of the U.S. being linked to affordable transportation, the use of alternative fuels is beginning to play a larger role. The use "alternative fuel" has been used to describe any fuel suggested for use in transportation vehicles other than gasoline or diesel. Since 1998, more than half of the petroleum the U.S. economy requires has been supplied by imports. In addition, the climatological and scientific community has warned that increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere will cause global change. Alternative Fuels examines the accepted alternative fuels, providing historical background, physical and chemical properties, production technology, and forecasts for each fuel. Alternative transportation fuels addressed include: methanol, ethanol, propane, natural gas, biodiesel, hydrogen, and electricity.

  • Automotive Materials Engineering Challenges and Solutions for the Use of Ethanol and Methanol Blended Fuels (2010-01-0729)

    Economic market forces and increasing environmental awareness of gasoline have led to interest in developing alternatives to gasoline, and extending the current global supply for transportation fuels. One viable strategy is the use of alternative alcohol fuels for combustion engines, with ethanol and methanol in various concentration ranges proposed and in-use. Utilizing and citing data from this review, a comprehensive overview of the materials selection and engineering challenges facing metals, plastics and elastomers are presented. The engineering approach and solution-sets discussed will focus on production feasibility and implementation. The effects from the fuel chemistry and quality of fuel ethanol produced on the related vehicle components are discussed. Through the discussions and analyses outlined in this review, the industry can benefit from a better understanding of the materials challenges and solution sets, subsequently improving the products and the customer experience, hence furthering the acceptance and adaptation of usage of alternative fuels and biofuels such as ethanol and methanol.
