April 29, 2021, 1 p.m. Central – Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines Capstone Webinar Series: How Can Fuels and Combustion Reduce Pollutants from Future Diesel Engines?
While electric cars are coming off the assembly line in ever-growing numbers, vehicles with internal combustion engines using fuels produced mainly from petroleum will continue to make up a large share of the automotive market for years to come. What innovations can make these engines and fuels as environmentally friendly and energy efficient as possible?
The U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies and Vehicle Technologies Offices’ Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines (Co-Optima) initiative is accelerating the introduction of efficient, clean, affordable, and scalable high-performance vehicle fuels and engines. A new Co-Optima Capstone Webinar Series highlights key takeaways from the breakthrough initiative.
Upcoming sessions include (all times are 1 p.m. Central):
May 27 – What environmental and economic benefits might be realized by co-optimizing fuels and SI engines for LD passenger vehicles?
June 24 – What environmental and economic benefits might be realized by co-optimizing fuels and engines for medium-duty (MD) and heavy-duty (HD) commercial vehicles?
August 26 – What unconventional engine-fuel combinations show the greatest promise for efficiency improvements beyond current LD/MD/HD technologies?
September 30 – Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines past, present and future: What did we learn and where do we go next?
