Introduction to engines and fuels for future transport

Abstract:

Global transport is almost entirely powered by internal combustion engines (ICEs) and petroleum-derived liquid fuels. Currently, there are many efforts to move transport away from this energy system to reduce its carbon footprint. In addition, tailpipe emissions from ICEs have to meet increasingly stringent standards. However, all the alternatives, such as battery electric vehicles (BEVs), start from a very low base and face very serious barriers to unlimited and fast expansion and cannot com...
