8th International MinNOX Conference for Sustainable Mobility
The debate about urban air quality and NOx emissions from pre-RDE diesel vehicles is known to us all. It has impacted our community in many ways. EU6d proves that NOx emissions can be reduced significantly under a wide range of RDE conditions. These developments have already brought new vehicles close to “zero impact” in terms of urban air quality.
Zero impact as a basic requirement
Nonetheless, most of us expect upcoming legislative steps to bring about further reductions in the limits. Our community should anticipate these steps, not only because the remaining development time may be short, but also in order to demonstrate the feasibility of a “real zero impact” emission level as a basis for future-proof, competitive ICE powertrains.
In the long-run, powertrain competitiveness will depend on the environmental impact from cradle to grave and the cost of fulfilling specific mobility requirements. ICE-powered vehicles will be the best way of fulfilling mobility requirements for medium and long distances, at least for the next decade. Continued access to urban areas and acceptance of ICEs in society depends crucially on achieving further progress towards a real zero-impact emission level and towards the usage of renewable energy carriers instead of fossil fuels.
Let’s discuss new ideas together
In the 8th MinNOx conference we would like to follow this line of thought and discuss with you the latest ideas and developments with regard to “Minimization of pollutant emissions from combustion engines”. As before we look forward to good technical dialog between international experts during the lectures and at the accompanying exhibition.
We are calling for your contributions on the following topics:
- Outlook regarding future exhaust emission legislation and latest trends in urban air quality
- MinNOx systems in CI and SI ICEs from passenger car to heavy duty as well as off-highway applications
- ICE concepts and exhaust aftertreatment system requirements for future fuels like Hydrogen, Methanol and Ammonia
- Global optimization of engine and MinNOX systems to reduce both nitrogen oxides and fuel consumption
- Chances and challenges for exhaust aftertreatment systems in electrified powertrains
- New technologies for engine-out NOx reduction and advanced MinNOx system thermal management
- New technologies for DeNOx reductant injection involving low-temperature dosing capability and mixing section design
- Modeling of exhaust aftertreatment components and engine systems involving AI, machine learning and model-based calibration
- Controls for MinNOx systems
- Monitoring and diagnostics of MinNOx systems
- MinNOx system ageing and technologies for improved in-service conformity
