International Conference for „New and alternative fuels“

On popular demand, the VDI Wissensforum and ATZlive offer a large-scale lecture programme on the topic "new and alternative fuels" in the framework of the International Engine Congress in Baden-Baden. The need for technically replace on this subject, is great. Mobility to be understood as "transport of persons and goods" does not work except fuels. However, the important question is with which fuels will this be successful? A huge challenge is to minimize emissions of pollutants to the neutrality. “Fuel” is the key factor for further development of the combustion engine.
