Advanced Biofuels USA Updates Next Generation Engines White Paper
by Joanne Ivancic (Advanced Biofuels USA) With Ford’s Ecoboost engines in about 40% of F-150 fleet and three shifts working in Cleveland, Ohio to keep up with demand, along with the increasing popularity of GM’s Ecotec engines, it was time for Robert Kozak to again revise the Advanced Biofuels USA white paper on new engine technologies.
Advanced Biofuels USA has been working over the past year to bring together fuel developers, producers and distributors with engine designers and manufacturers to help them work together to most efficiently and effectively. The gathering at the well-received June 2012 Infocast Next Generation Engines/Next Generation Fuels Workshop and Forum was an initial step in accomplishing that goal.
This revision also incorporates information gleaned at that conference and subsequent meetings.
This paper provides a very approachable summary of how different internal combustion engines operate. It’s a good review for “car guys” and a terrific introduction and overview for those of us who haven’t much of a clue about what we see when we look under the hood.
A “must read” for anyone trying to understand how biofuels will actually get used by customers in the marketplace. Download Paper
