For the 9th time, up to 300 international engine developers met to discuss the future of the combustion engine in passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The topic of fuels was of particular importance, since synthetic fuels are considered to be a key to the emission-neutral operation of diesel and petrol engines.
In addition to 10 plenary lectures and an intensive panel discussion on "The internal combustion engine in regenerative energy sytems of the future” with representatives from the industry, education and the government the experts discussed solutions for
- Climate-friendly internal combustion engines from a global perspective
- Internal combustion engines and fuels as a complete system: CO2 neutrality, emissions, electrification
- The use of hydrogen and synthetic fuels
- Cross-sector life cycle considerations
