European Commission

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement no. 653391.



The overall objective of the HDGAS project is to develop, demonstrate and optimize advanced powertrain concepts for dual-fuel and for pure natural gas operation engines, perform integration thereof into heavy duty vehicles and confirm achievement of Euro VI emissions standards, in-use compliance under real-world driving conditions and CO2 or greenhouse gas targets currently under definition.

NGVA Europe LNG Connector Workshop

A further step in the market introduction of an improved LNG refueling connector consisting of a fueling nozzle and a fueling receptacle has been taken by HDGAS partners. The activities of Daimler and partners strive to standardize a new receptacle design in Europe. Read more...


HDGAS’s first publication regarding Lean Burn Natural Aftertreatment Systems

Partners of the HDGAS project have for the first time published parts of their findings regarding lean burn aftertreatment systems for natural gas applications. The paper gives an alternative explanation for the joint effect of water and sulfur species on the deactivation of the catalyst, and highlights the importance of the active metal state during the regeneration without focusing only on recover in activity.

Design of an advanced spark-ignition engine for LNG operation

A Natural Gas engine has to have similar performances as a Diesel one (be “Diesel like”). Thus, a new generation of spark-ignition (SI) NG engines has to be developed, more powerful and with higher thermal efficiency. The new FPT Industrial Cursor 9 NG engine is an example, capable of reaching 294kW and 1700 Nm, reaching exactly the performances of its Diesel version.
HD NG engines are currently derived from parent diesel engines, in order to exploit common components, thus keeping the engine cost as low as possible. By doing so, however, some basic components, such as the cylinder head, turbine, injection system and after treatments have been developed specifically for the FPT engine. Read more...
