CREO

Redesigning the engine and after-treatment as a complete system, meeting business requirements and minimising CO2.

The CREO (Carbon Reduction Through Emissions Optimisation) project investigated the re-design the engine and after-treatment as a complete system, meeting legislative, customer and business requirements while minimising CO2 levels.

This was achieved through the use of novel after-treatment techniques, the on-board generation and use of hydrogen and the development and application of new optimisation tools. The main area focussed on the on-board generation of hydrogen to improve combustion and after-treatment efficiency. The project looked at both the reformer and the electrolysis techniques to produce on-board hydrogen generation.
