Reducing CO2 emission is the key global issue to maintain human sustainability. At the automotive sector, further engine evolution is required. Internal combustion engines still have several losses such as cooling and exhaust losses and so leave much room for improving fuel economy. Mazda has been working on further fuel economy improvement by focusing on seven main control factors. This presentation provides the future steps to close to the ideal internal combustion engines in terms of the thermal efficiency. As an example of control factors, the heat transfer to combustion chamber walls is focused and some applications are shown by CAE and experimental analysis.

Transport is and will continue to be largely powered by petroleum-based liquid fuels. Alternatives start from a low base and are mostly relevant to passenger cars generally powered by spark-ignition (SI) engines using gasoline. The expected increase in global demand for transport energy will be significantly skewed towards diesel and jet fuel rather than gasoline. Abnormal combustion such as knock and preignition will become more likely as SI engines seek higher efficiency and gasoline antiknock quality will become more important. Such changes in fuel demand will pose big challenges to the refining industry and will likely lead to a surplus of low octane gasoline components. In efficient SI engines, for a given RON (Research Octane Number), a fuel of lower MON (Motor Octane Number) has better antiknock quality.

Heavy-duty commercial vehicles, small in vehicle numbers but with high fuel consumption, have significant meanings to energy saving and emission reduction. With the continuous upgrade of commercial vehicle emission regulations, it is expected that the China VI standard for heavy-duty commercial vehicles and the third phase of fuel consumption regulations for Stage III will be implemented one after another around 2020. This report will introduce the China VI emission control technology, analyze and explore the China VI emission control routes, and talk about high-efficiency SCR, DPF passive regeneration, thermal management and other key emission control technologies.

The Transportation Energy Evolution Modeling (TEEM) program of Oak Ridge National Laboratory develops the MA3T (Market Acceptance of Advanced Automotive Technologies) model to improve understanding of market penetration of high efficient vehicles, electric vehicles, automated vehicles and smart mobility. This talk will introduce recent analysis results with MA3T to show how the demand for efficient and electric vehicle can be affected by technology cost, automation, infrastructure and policies. Market-driven compliance of the U.S. fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards will also be discussed, followed by some preliminary results of market-driven analysis of China’s CAFC/NEV policy, using the newly-developed New Energy and Oil Consumption Credit (NEOCC) model.

In addressing the climate challenge, we see efficiency as a key element in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, particularly within the transport sector. This challenge is too significant to be addressed by any single stakeholder working in isolation. Instead, further efficiency gains within the transport sector will be dependent upon close collaboration between automakers, regulators, and fuel producers. We are therefore seeking opportunities to collaborate with automakers, to accelerate the development of cost-effective, viable technologies that can make a real contribution toward the climate challenge, while also partnering with leading academic institutions, such as Tsinghua University. Last year, Saudi Arabia launched a rapid transformation strategy in the Kingdom. Vision 2030 is about comprehensive reforms to ensure economic sustainability, economic diversification through private led growth, and the privatization of key state-owned enterprises.

Internal combustion engines will continue to play a major role in the transport sector for the foreseeable future. Continuing to improve the efficiency of this well-established technology platform, therefore offers clear advantages when it comes to achieving meaningful reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, while concurrently meeting the ever increasing global demand for mobility. The energy industry can and should play a more active role in partnering with automakers to address these needs. Although today’s internal combustion engines are more efficient than ever, there is still considerable scope for improving efficiency, by optimizing the engine and fuel as a synergistic system. To facilitate this process, we have established dedicated fuel research centers in Detroit and Paris, strategically important locations that maximize our opportunities to collaborate with key stakeholders.
