Co-Optima Capstone Webinar: MD and HD Commercial Vehicles
June 24, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
What environmental and economic benefits might be realized by co-optimizing fuels and engines for medium-duty (MD) and heavy-duty (HD) commercial vehicles?
Co-optimizing fuels and engines has the potential to enhance the economics and reduce the environmental impact of the MD and HD transportation sectors. This session discusses Co-Optima’s characterization of the cost and environmental effects of performance-enhancing bioblendstocks, their potential benefits for fuel producers, integrated modeling exploring their potential for production at commercial scale, and associated societal benefits.
The U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies and Vehicle Technologies Offices’ Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines (Co-Optima) initiative is accelerating the introduction of efficient, clean, affordable, and scalable high-performance vehicle fuels and engines. A new Co-Optima Capstone Webinar Series highlights key takeaways from the breakthrough initiative.
