Panel: Emerging Powertrain and Emission System Technologies for Future Green Energy Opportunities and Greenhouse Emission Reduction
Room Hall 7A 10:00
Responding to global challenges on global climate changes, new fuel economy and greenhouse gas targets to minimize global warming are key drivers for light and heavy duty vehicle development around the world. The emerging powertrain technology changes are critical to meet these targets which will generate unique challenges and opportunities for emission control systems. Driven by a growing understanding and concern of the health impacts of vehicle emissions, the trends for global regulations on vehicle emissions will continue to tighten. Future emission control solutions must consider their impacts on both traditional auto emission pollutants, as well as greenhouse gases. This proposed panel presentation will focus on several emerging powertrain and after treatment technology trends within the exhaust emission control industry for both heavy duty and light-duty applications. Specific emissions challenges faced by engine and vehicle manufacturers will be addressed through this modern technology on exhaust emission controls into powertrain system solutions. The proposed panel discussion will also provide important future opportunities for further emissions reductions from both light and heavy duty vehicle sources. The industry trends in emissions control systems for both gasoline and diesel vehicles will be discussed and compared for different global markets.
