Every two years, the ERC organizes and hosts a symposium that focuses on special topics that are current and relevant to people involved in the transportation and combustion fields. Presentations are given by a range of experts providing perspectives on technical, strategic planning, policy and regulatory issues. The meetings have traditionally been well attended with 100-150 people from engine, automotive, truck, and energy companies.
Thank you to all of the speakers and participants who attended the 2022 ERC Symposium “Low Net-GHG Fuel and Engine Technologies.” Here is a list of the speakers with links who approved posting their presentations.

2022 Low Net-GHG Fuel and Engine Technologies
June 15-16th, 2022
The University of Wisconsin Madison Engine Research Center (ERC) held the 2022 ERC Symposium titled “Low Net-GHG Fuel and Engine Technologies”. The symposium focused on three areas: ‘Low-GHG Fuels’, ‘Engine/System Technologies’, and ‘Energy, Economic, and Lifecycle Analysis’.
Attendees engaged in:
- Learning what low carbon fuels are likely to be used in current and future engines around the world.
- Hearing about the latest efficiency-boosting combustion and engine system technologies.
- Discovering where research on fuel efficiency and emissions aftertreatment is headed.
- Networking with leading researchers, technologists, and design engineers.
An agenda is available with links to presentation slides.
