AgendaNext Generation Engines & Fuels Forum | June 19-20, 2012
The Next Generation Engines and Fuels Forum will bring together all of the stakeholders—automakers and engine manufacturers, oil companies and refiners, renewable fuels producers, blenders and retailers—to discuss the best way to work together to meet the new CAFE and Tier 3 standards. In a thoughtful, considered, collaborative manner, they will begin the discussion of the strategies, plans and processes for working together to achieve goals of historic importance. Stakeholders will share their ideas and perspectives on how to work together so that everyone can start working in concert—and arrive at the finish line at the same time. The Forum will be the ideal place to tap into the regulatory, engine and fuel dynamics; and to interact with the people who will change the face of the auto and fuels industries of the future.
Pre-Forum Workshop: The Path to Improved Engine, Emissions and Fuel Performance | June 18, 2012
Three interactive sets of goals have to be met in the new environment being created by proposed fuel mileage improvement and vehicle emission Tier 3 regulations:
- Improved engine performance
- Improved emissions performance (criteria pollutants: HC/CO/NOx/PM) and CO2
- Improved fuel performance with minimal cost increases
The workshop will explore some of the key questions about the path for achieving these interactive goals.
