    Low Carbon Transport Engineering the Fuels of the Future, 9 July 2019

    Start date: 09/07/2019
    Cost: Please register via Link

    In light of the tightening of emissions targets, there is a lot of government and industry focus on pure electric vehicles. However, it is important for industry to see them as part of the solution and to look at the landscape of the market as whole before committing to certain technologies. An alternative to consider is low carbon fuels in internal combustion engines as by 2050, a scenario based around low-carbon liquid fuels could potentially reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) life-cycle emissions by 87 per cent of their 2015 values.

    This seminar will address latest developments in low carbon fuels including biofuels, power to liquid and ammonia so your business can explore how to incorporate them into your power sources. Gain insight into low carbon fuels in use by the automotive and marine sectors to see how challenges are being met. Be part of the discussion about how to overcome the barriers to widespread adoption with key cross-sector players. The event will bring together fuel developers, engine developers, fuel technology providers, OEMs, researchers and regulators to discuss how the different parts of the industry can work together to encourage adoption.

    Confirmed speakers include

    • Alan Tolley, Group Director – Powertrain, JCB
    • Tolga Aketerk, Plant Manager, Audi e-gas plant, Audi
    • Matthew Keenan, Global Technical Expert, Exhaust Aftertreatment, Ricardo
    • Mike Muskett, Distinguished Advisor, Downstream Technology, BP
    • Andy Eastlake, Managing Director, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership
