ABSTRACT
BOSMAL hosted the 2nd International Exhaust Emissions Symposium, entitled Current and future trends in automotive emissions, fuels, lubricants and test methods, which featured a total of eighteen presentations from experts on automotive emissions and aftertreatment and the fuel and lubricant industries. The symposium’s technical programme consisted of two keynote lectures and four themed presentation sessions. The symposium also featured the opening of new engine test cells at BOSMAL. The entire event was an unqualified success, building on the achievements of thepreviousyear’s event. Some of the most important trends mentioned during the symposium included: changes to test procedures to reflect the challenge of quantifying ever decreasing emission levels, as well as measuring new compounds, the continued key role of catalytic aftertreatment systems in achieving low emission levels of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter, and the potential rolefor electrified powertrains and alternative fuels from various sources to meet our transportation energy needs over the coming decades.
