New Engine Technology Forum Digital Event

How Propane is Evolving for the Future

Washington, D.C., April 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Engine Technology Forum (ETF) will launch its 2024 digital event series on May 1 with a webinar about innovations in engine technology for enhancing the use of propane as a vehicle fuel.

Propane has 52% fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to equivalent amount of energy generated from the U.S. electrical grid. Renewable propane is made from sustainable feedstocks and offers further reductions in carbon emissions.

The virtual audience will learn about where propane fits in propulsion and energy generation markets, its potential to contribute to decarbonization efforts, as well as the technologies and innovations making propane a viable low-carbon, renewable, alternative fuel for direct injection internal combustion engines in hard-to-electrify vehicle applications.

Speakers include Gav Hale of the Propane Education and Research Counsel (PERC), Eric Suits of Katech Engineering, and Srinu Guntutu of Stanadyne.

The event is Wednesday, May 1, from 2-3pm ET. Admission is free, however advanced registration is required through the link below.

ETF’s digital event series will continue later this spring with a session about hydrogen as a fuel for internal combustion engines. Other sessions this year will discuss advancements in technology to achieve lower emissions and greater efficiency, as well as the future for internal combustion engines in a reduced carbon world. Announcements of additional topics will be made throughout the year in the webinar section of the ETF website.
