Eddie Sturman: "Alternative fuels in conventional engines have a low probability of success."

The 10th Annual Biogas and Biomethane Conference was held in Montreal, Quebec on May 24 and 25 2012. Sponsored by the Air and Waste Management Association's Quebec section, the event drew speakers and participants from all over the globe. Speaker topics covered such diverse areas as innovations in biogas development, biogas and biomass as vehicle fuels, biogas market development and technology advancements that allow the use of such alternative fuels in both the transportation and power generation industries.

Eddie and Carol Sturman presented "Development of Modern Engine Controls to Optimize the Use of Alternative Fuels" on Thursday, May 25 to a packed audience. 

Eddie emphasized that the use of alternative fuels in conventional engines have a very low probability of success. Conventional engines are an elegant solution because there is only one step from fuel to work, however, their fixed and limited mechanical controls need to be replaced. When the old conventional mechanical controls are used the combustion process is not effectively managed, and they certainly don't meet all of today's needs. It doesn't make sense to try to force alternative fuels to work in such engines. Instead, Eddie explained, old engine controls can simply be replaced with modern, flexible components.

"Combustion in conventional engines are just wasteful and pollution emitting explosions," says Sturman. "We have developed controls designed to dramatically reduce and/or eliminate the in-cylinder formation of emissions found in conventional engines. We do this by controlling combustion itself."

Sturman controls provide for more efficient use of alternative fuels, can accommodate varying fuel quality, may enable reduced fuel processing, and can reduce losses to use more of the fuel for work, and have less waste.
