New task areas

Three new task areas are being explored by the Combustion TCP.  They are:

  • Clean high efficiency engines - Focused on advance combustion technologies and fuels offering low to net-zero carbon emissions with clean, high-efficiency operation. 
  • Systems Analysis - Focused on assessing the impact of combustion advances on the overall performance of various combustion systems.
  • Hydrogen and its Vector Fuels -  Several projects on this topic already exist within the current Combustion TCP Tasks.  Due to growing interest in the topic area, the ExCo is weighing the merits of a stand alone Task on this topic.
  • Aftertreatment - A critical component of typical combustion systems is an exhaust aftertreatment system to remove pollutants from the exhaust stream.
