Future alternative transport fuels (Future Fuels)

The growing demand for transportation and the finite resources of fossil fuels along with the expected climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions are perhaps the greatest challenges for the modern society. To reduce the above mentioned problem the efficiency of the vehicle's propulsion system must be improved, but this will not be enough to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases enough for a sustainable future, therefore a transition to renewable fuels for transport is necessary. The overall objective of the project is to identify fuels that combines the excellent combustion properties and high long-term sustainability. That is to show the potential to reduce emissions of fossil CO2 from combustion engines that use non-fossil fuels and at the same time operates with optimum fuel efficiency taking into consideration the time horizon.
