8th International MinNOx Conference
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 depends crucially on achieving further progress towards a real zero-impact emission level.
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 nitrogen oxide 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 diesel, gasoline and hybrid powertrains from passenger car to heavy duty as well as off-highway applications
- New technologies for AdBlue injection involving low-temperature dosing capability and mixing section design
- Global optimization of engine and MinNOx systems to reduce both nitrogen oxide and CO2 emissions
- New technologies for engine-out NOx reduction and advanced MinNOx system thermal management
- Chances and challenges for exhaust aftertreatment systems in electrified powertrains
- 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 service conformity
