Saudi Aramco and Chi­nese en­ti­ties Ts­inghua Univer­sity, FAW Jiefang Au­to­mo­tive Wuxi Diesel Works (FAWDE), and Shan­dong Cham­broad Petro­chem­i­cals Com­pany an­nounced the start of a re­search pro­gramme ded­i­cated to fuel and en­gine op­ti­mi­sa­tion, and ex­haust af­ter-treat­ment tech­nolo­gies.

This co­op­er­a­tion aims to de­velop ul­tra-low emis­sion fuel and en­gine tech­nolo­gies that would meet the most strin­gent fu­ture emis­sion reg­u­la­tions.

Un­der the re­search pro­gramme, Saudi Aramco will pro­pose new fuel for­mu­la­tions, support its flag­ship tech­nol­ogy ‘Gaso­line Com­pres­sion Ig­ni­tion’, and fur­ther de­velop mo­bile car­bon cap­ture tech­nolo­gies as a vi­able route to achieve lower green­house gas emis­sions.

Cham­broad Petro­chem­i­cal will con­duct re­fin­ery mod­el­ling, tech­noe­co­nomic anal­y­sis, and pro­duce new fu­els for test­ing. And FAWDE will pro­vide pro­to­type en­gines and af­ter-treat­ment sys­tems, as well as con­duct sys­tem in­te­gra­tion and ve­hi­cle demon­stra­tion.
