New method coming up to power heavy duty trucks

In new research, engineers have devised a new way of powering heavy-duty truck that could drastically curb pollution, increase efficiency, and reduce or even eliminate their net greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the research, the concept involves using a plug-in hybrid engine system, in which the truck would be primarily powered by batteries, but with a spark ignition engine (instead of a diesel engine).

That engine, which would allow the trucks to conveniently travel the same distances as today’s conventional diesel trucks, would be a flex-fuel model that could run on pure gasoline, pure alcohol, or blends of these fuels.

Detailed computer modelling of a whole range of desired engine characteristics, combined with a screening of the results using an artificial intelligence system, yielded clear indications of the most promising pathways and showed that such substitutions are indeed practically and financially feasible.
