Queensland University of Technology Opens Biofuel Engine Research Facility

Queensland University of Technology has opened a biofuel engine research facility that will enable testing of a range of biofuels and new engine technologies with the aim of producing engines tailor-made for particular biofuels.

Dr Richard Brown, from the new Biofuel Engine Research Facility, said the facility would test the emissions, efficiency and engine performance of renewable fuel made from plant material.

Biodiesel very often produces fewer emissions than ordinary fuel but not always—engines are complicated and so we need to test a variety of fuels and engine types commonly used in the mining, industrial and transport sectors. Our aim will be to provide engine manufacturers with the information they need to build the most efficient tailor-made engines for particular fuels.
