Research Focus

The goal of the Implementing Agreement is to accelerate the development of combustion technologies for use by industry that demonstrate reduced fuel consumption and have lower pollutant emissions. This goal is achieved by the development of analytical and experimental methods applicable to advanced internal combustion engines, gas turbines and furnaces. It emphasizes a high degree of industrial involvement to insure adequate attention to industrial needs (i.e., “market pull”) and dissemination of technology to the marketplace, and is facilitated by a task-sharing agreement among member nations and through personnel collaboration.
