I have authored a paper entitled “Modelling of the oxidation of fuel sulfur in low speed two-stroke Diesel engines ” in collaboration with my colleague Stefan Mayer from the Process Development Department, Marine Low-Speed, MAN Diesel in Copenhagen. The paper has just been accepted for publication for the 2010 CIMAC congress held in Bergen, Norway, and will be presented by myself at the congress on Wednesday 16th of June in the morning between 8.30 and 10.00 in Room C (according to the preliminary programme).

In the paper a detailed a detailed reaction mechanism is used in order to simulate the oxidation of fuel bound sulfur and predicting the concentration of SO2 as well as the conversion fraction into SO3 and H2SO4 . The reaction mechanism is coupled to a realistic model of the combustion process in which the air entrainment into the combustion zone is accounted for. The results of the simulation are evaluated with respect to previously applied models as well as existing data on the conversion fraction of SO2 to SO3 and H2SO4. The conversion fraction is found to be in a range of 2.6-6.7 %.
