CSIRO and partners to test Direct Injection Carbon Engine to reduce brown coal emissions by up to 50%

CSIRO and partners to test Direct Injection Carbon Engine to reduce brown coal emissions by up to 50% 28 April 2014 CSIRO (Australia’s national science agency) and its industry partners plan to conduct a A$1-million (US$930,000) trial of the Direct Injection Carbon Engine (DICE ) in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley—the second largest and lowest-cost brown coal resource in the world—with the aim of reducing emissions from brown coal-generated electricity by 50% compared to current technology. DICE involves converting coal or biomass into a water-based slurry (called micronised refined carbon, MRC) that is directly injected into a large, specially adapted diesel engine. The fuel burns to produce intense temperature and pressure in the engine, which provides highly efficient power to turn electrical generators. MRC has been produced from a range of solid carbon-based fuels, includin...
