Abstract
Flame or combustion gave humans healthy food, protection, heat, light, and so on. The combustion also gave the power for a car to move from point A to point B. Most of the vehicle in the world now are powered by the internal combustion engines. The engine converts the chemical energy stored in the reactant, i.e. mixture of fuel and air, into thermal and mechanical energy. Engines and fuel technology are scalable, cheap and compact. They are also can be produced in a sustainable way or in a carbon-neutral cycle. Therefore, internal combustion engines are still the main power source for the current and for future transport systems. Renewable methanol (or synthetic methanol) is a great fuel for internal combustion engines thanks to its interesting properties and high fuel production efficiency. Methanol is also considered as a hydrogen carrier fuel, which can be easily generated on-board using engine exhaust heat. The present work focuses on the thermochemical recuperation for methanol reforming to further improve the engine efficiency and reduce harmful emissions.
