This change recognizes the new opportunities and challenges for diesel, as well as other internal combustion engines, and fuels in powering key sectors of the global economy while contributing to reduced greenhouse gases and other emissions.

“Internal combustion engines (ICE) like diesel, gasoline, and natural gas are the fundamental power behind our economy and mobility,” said Allen Schaeffer, executive director, in a statement. “Continued innovations in efficiency, lower emissions, new engine designs, and new fuels offer tremendous promise for the future of ICE technology and helping meet our societal goals.”

The new Engine Technology Forum is a place for fact-based discussions as well as debate about all options for meeting our energy, environmental, and economic goals. ETF will work with all stakeholders including government, industry, environmental, and community groups seeking solutions to reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions. ETF’s work encompasses freight transport, agriculture, construction, mining, as well as other industrial and commercial applications.

“There are many pathways to a reduced carbon future, and we should embrace all of them,” said Schaeffer. “Some technologies like internal combustion engines and cleaner fuels are more certain and available today, while others may hold greater promise for the future. Members of the new ETF are leaders in both advanced internal combustion engines and zero emissions technologies that provide the best solutions for their customers.”
