Abstract

This report reviews the performance of the Clean Clear Fuel Technologies, Inc.’s (CCFT’s) Universal Fuel Cell, Model CCFT21061. Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program testing of this technology was conducted during a series of tests in November 2003 by Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) under contract with RTI International’s (RTI’s) Air Pollution Control Technology (APCT) Center. The objective of the APCT Center and the ETV Program is to verify, with high data quality, the performance of air pollution control technologies. Control of air emissions from diesel engines is within the scope of the APCT Center. An APCT Center program area was designed by RTI and a technical panel of experts to evaluate the performance of diesel exhaust catalysts, particulate filters, and engine modification control technologies for mobile diesel engines. Based on the activities of this technical panel, the Generic Verification Protocol for Diesel Exhaust Catalysts, Particulate Filters, and Engine Modification Control Technologies for Highway and Nonroad Use Diesel Engines1 was developed. The specific test/quality assurance (QA) plan addendum for the ETV test of the technology submitted by CCFT was developed and approved on August 27, 2003.2 The goal of the test was to measure the emissions control performance of the technology system and its emissions reduction relative to an uncontrolled engine.
