12th Conference Injection and Fuels
How are we going to reach the targets set for CO2?
Although the subject of air pollution from exhaust emissions, such as fine dust and nitrogen oxides, continues to dominate in public awareness (Dieselgate, driving bans in towns and cities etc.), this problem will be resolved in a few years and move out of the focus. Modern vehicles powered by gasoline or diesel combustion engines will then emit exhaust pollutants at the detection limit, also in real driving conditions.
The challenge today is to stop climate change and significantly reduce the greenhouse gases responsible for it – the focus here being on CO2 – and ultimately avoid or neutralize all anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The targets set at climate conferences and, derived from these, by the European Union are extremely ambitious.
CO2 Reduction and Neutrality
The hope of achieving these goals with electric mobility is deceptive. It will doubtlessly need to make a key and necessary contribution, but it will be equally as important and imperative to significantly reduce CO2 emissions from internal combustion engines. The latter will remain the predominant drive system for passenger and, above all, goods transport for decades to come, particularly when seen from a global perspective.
Our conference will examine ways of reducing and neutralizing CO2 through alternative fuels, such as H2, e-fuels, OME, PtX, natural gas. In this context, we will look at their extraction and production, at using them in engines as well as at the injection technology needed to do so.
