The International Engine Congress of VDI Wissensforum and ATZlive in Baden-Baden has been an important meeting place for engine developers and fuel specialists for years. Decision makers and experts from all over the world meet here to discuss the future of the combustion engine.
The main focus of the congress is to discuss the technical potential of the combustion engine for emission-neutral mobility in the future, because electric mobility alone will not achieve the ambitious climate goals of this and the upcoming decades. An important key here is fuel, because its decarbonization would help the entire engine-fuel system to move in the right direction for a climate-neutral propulsion.
The congress is therefore based on three equally important thematic pillars: consideration of the overall system of combustion engines for passenger cars and commercial vehicles as well as fuels. The aim is to make targeted use of the synergies with regard to fuels, their properties and the new approaches to powertrain development based on them. With the close interaction between passenger car and commercial vehicle engine developers and fuel experts, we want to promote the exchange of experience, both nationally and internationally, within the framework of this multipart congress.
