Washington, DC, Aug. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Diesel Technology Forum (DTF) today announced an upcoming virtual event to discuss the future of diesel, exploring technologies and policies that will help determine the future for diesel technology.  The event, to be held August 20, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:15 pm ET, is the first in a two-part series exploring the future for diesel technology in all applications.

 “The prospect and promise of new fuels and technologies is a topic of great discussion today, just as the challenges of the future are formidable.  Reducing environmental and climate impacts and meeting customer demands for more efficiency and productivity is the challenge for the future for all fuels and technologies.  This session will highlight how diesel technology is evolving, improving, and prepared to meet those challenges and continue to play a dominant role in key sectors of the economy,” said Allen Schaeffer, Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum, a not-for-profit association representing manufacturers of diesel engines and equipment, key suppliers of emissions control and other technologies and fuel producers. 

“Our session will explore the innovations in technologies to achieve even lower emissions and greater efficiency as well as government policies and other influences.  Diesel has always been a technology of continuous improvement and innovation, and we are fortunate for this session to have industry leaders Bosch, Tenneco and Umicore to share their insights and perspectives on technology development, regulatory influences and customer demands driving the diesel powertrains of the future.”

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Alexander Freitag, Vice President Diesel Powertrain Systems, Robert Bosch NA
  • Keri Westbrooke, Vice President, VP Chief Technology Officer, Powertrain, Tenneco
  • Dmitri Konson, Vice President Engineering, Tenneco Clean Air
