Dr. Piotr Bielaczyc, has become a leading researcher in the field of transport's environmental impacts. He is renowned for his expertise and experience in the ecological assessment of vehicles, aftertreatment systems and real-world emissions. He has fostered international cooperation in research and on the application of vehicle technologies.
Dr. Piotr Bielaczyc, Ph.D. is the head of the Engine Research Department at BOSMAL Automotive R&D Institute in Bielsko-Biala, Poland. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Poznan University of Technology (Poland). From 2000 onwards he has been the Head of BOSMAL’s Engine Research Department. He has recently been involved with the validation of the WLTP and RDE test methodology; in the past 20 years he was a project manager for over 500 projects related to development of CI and SI Euro 4, 5 and 6 LD engines as well as Euro IV, V, VI HD engines , their parts and assemblies that were launched to production by automotive and engines OEMs. Several projects were also related to fuels, alternative fuels and fuel additive development.
Dr. Bielaczyc has published widely in scientific journals and is a regular participant at international automotive conferences. His research interests include LDV and HD engine development, exhaust emissions R&D, biofuels and alternative fuels, cold start emissions, emission test methods and aftertreatment solutions, vehicular particulate matter emissions, as well as hybrid and electric powertrain development.
He is a member of the UNECE GRPE group, the forum for world-wide harmonization of emissions regulation, he takes parts in WLTP, RDE, EVE and PMP groups and was a member of the EU WLTP 2nd group introducing WLTP test method in EU. He is currently also a member of the EU Advisory Group on Vehicles Emission Standards (AGVES) working on post Euro 6 and Euro VI regulations.
Over the past ten years he has organised and hosted a series of successful and well-received international automotive emissions symposia (IEES) as well as Congresses of Internal Combustion Engines organized by PTNSS.
He is a lecturer at the University of Leeds in England on its well-known NOx-PM courses; he also often lectures at other universities or scientific institutes.
