The realization that the electrification of automotive drivetrains can only develop in an evolutionary manner has ensured that internal combustion engines continue to hold the pole position in the context of low-emissions mobility. The "International Engine Congress" focuses not only on approaching the internal combustion engine comprehensively and systematically, but also on drivetrain electrification. By closely integrating passenger-car and commercial-vehicle engine technologies, the congress promotes the exchange of best practices. A dedicated series of talks addressing alternative fuels round out the content.
Climate protection targets and air quality specifications are changing our mobility. Europe has agreed on a further reduction in CO2 limits. The electrification of powertrains is one solution that can fulfill part of our mobility and transportation requirements. However, national and international markets require a multi-track approach that must not neglect the internal combustion engine. CO2-neutral fuels are indispensable components of this approach.
Future mobility and environmental objectives –
what will be the role of the internal combustion engine?

Once again in 2020, the International Engine Congress will continue its systematic examination of the complete system of internal combustion engines and innovative fuels on which it has consistently focused for many years. Efficient passenger car and commercial vehicle engines combined with new fuels are the key technology for CO2-neutral individual mobility with low emissions.
