As a stakeholder in the Bio4Fuels FME and with particular interest in the end use of the proposed fuels, the Department of Energy and Process Engineering NTNU, will be hosting a one day workshop on aspects of the end use of the fuels under development in the FME. The thematic title of the workshop is Diesel engines for transport - present and future scenarios and their impact on the biofuel implementation.
The FME mission statement
“The Centre aims to develop innovative technology and support industries to realize economic and sustainable conversion of lignocellulosic biomass and organic residues to transportation fuels, along with added value chemicals, heat and power”
The workshop will focus on the transportation fuels of the mission statement and introduce the current issues facing the diesel engine and some of the future legislative hurdles it will face. This will include an introduction the known public health issue around diesel engine usage. Trends in the internal combustion engine and the possible de-dieselation process will be presented. With these issues in mind the suitable response to the rapidly changing landscape by the Bio4Fuels FME will be discussed.
