FVV Research Priorities

MTZ worldwide is the world's leading magazine for engine development and offers its readers up-to-date news from research and development on a monthly basis.

As part of our partnership, we regularly present topical issues from the FVV Research Programme at MTZ: Fuels - components and materials, emission reduction technologies (climate/air) - mechanics, friction and noise - development tools.

Operating Fluids and Materials are Key Technologies for Efficient Combustion Engines

High power density is key for further increasing the efficiency of internal combustion engines. It can be reached by aligning operating fluids (fuels, coolants and lubricants) and materials to pair long service life and high fatigue strength with optimized friction. The projects initiated by the Research Association for Combustion Engines (FVV) bridge the gap between basic research and industrial applications.

Exhaust Gas Aftertreatment of the Future

Exhaust gas from modern combustion engines is cleaner than ever before. Current projects of the Research Association for Combustion Engines (FVV) show that exhaust emissions can be reduced even further, especially in real operation. At the same time, electrification and the introduction of alternative fuels impose new requirements to exhaust gas aftertreatment.

Research into Interactions Between Internal Combustion Engines and Fuels

The chemical composition of fuel has considerable impact on the operational and emission behavior of internal combustion engines. Moreover, CO2 emissions of engines and turbines depend not only on the carbon content of the fuel but also on its production pathway. Investigating interactions between fuel and combustion is therefore one of the core tasks of internal combustion engine research.

Industrial Collective Research on Fuel Cells

Late last year, the Research Association for Combustion Engines (FVV) launched its new Fuel Cell Planning Group with the primary objective of making carbon-neutral long haul and cargo mobility affordable through industrial collective research. The research projects initiated so far have revealed considerable potential for cost reductions in the field of fuel cells.
