Octane Workshop Series — July 9-12, 2018 — Various Locations
The Fuels Institute and the national laboratories that comprise the DOE Co-Optimization of Fuels and Engines initiative are co-hosting a series of collaborative, single-day stakeholder meetings to review current research on the role of octane and other fuel properties relevant to producing fuels that could enable the design of more efficient spark ignition, internal combustion engines. Each session will present the latest findings of research concerning fuels and engine options that might enhance vehicle efficiency and reduce emissions, and the opportunities and challenges associated with delivering such products to market.
Following these presentations, stakeholders will engage in a collaborative process to further explore the research findings, contemplate potential implications for the fuels and vehicles markets and identify potential next steps to further advance knowledge, understanding and awareness of these topics. The proceedings of each workshop will be captured and compiled into a summary document that will be shared with interested parties and may form the basis for additional stakeholder engagement on the subject of fuels and engines optimization.
Don’t miss the Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines (Co-Optima) initiative and Fuels Institute Workshops coming up in July! Join the National Renewal Energy Laboratory and other U.S. Department of Energy laboratories for four collaborative one-day workshops that focus on the role of octane and other fuel properties in producing fuels that will enable more efficient spark ignition, internal combustion engine design. The workshops include the following focus areas:
- Regulatory (July 9, 2018; Orange County, California)
- Biofuel (July 10, 2018; Wichita, Kansas)
- Refinery (July 11, 2018; Houston, Texas)
- Auto Industry (July 12, 2018; Detroit, Michigan)
These workshops will be highly informative for anyone engaged in petroleum refining, biofuels production, liquid fuel distribution and retailing, automotive engineering, fuels and vehicles regulations, and/or fuels and vehicles research.
