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.
