New Vehicle Technologies Clean Diesel:  Allen Schaeffer Executive Director www.dieselforum.org New Vehicle Technologies Clean Diesel Agenda:  Agenda About the Diesel Technology Forum Primer on diesel technology and applications What is clean diesel technology? What changes have taken place in diesel industry – engines, fuels and emissions? What are the benefits of clean diesel in cars, trucks and SUVs? How can you experience clean diesel technology? Diesel Technology Forum Leaders in Promoting Clean Diesel Technology:  Diesel Technology Forum Leaders in Promoting Clean Diesel Technology What do these have in common?:  What do these have in common? All are powered by diesel technology Slide5:  All are powered by diesel technology Roles of Diesel Technology in Your Community:  Roles of Diesel Technology in Your Community Slide7:  Diesel Power: Key to Preserving Public Safety Diesel Power: Protecting Homeland Security :  Diesel Power: Protecting Homeland Security Value -- Emergency Diesel Back up Generators Protect Public Health and Safety: :  Value -- Emergency Diesel Back up Generators Protect Public Health and Safety: What makes Clean Diesel different?:  What makes Clean Diesel different? Clean Diesel for Cars, Trucks and SUVs :  Clean Diesel for Cars, Trucks and SUVs What is Clean Diesel? -- A System :  Emissions Treatment Clean Diesel System Advanced Engine Technology Cleaner Diesel Fuels Ultra low Sulfur Diesel Fuel produces lower emissions and enables advanced emissions treatment systems (catalysts and filters) Particulate filters, oxidation catalysts, SCR reduce emissions of ozone-forming compounds (NOx and VOCs), trap and eliminate fine particles Advanced engine electronic combustion control , fuel injection systems & turbochargers optimize performance and low-emissions What is Clean Diesel? -- A System Clean diesel Cars, Trucks and SUVs poised for Comeback in the US: Why?:  Clean diesel Cars, Trucks and SUVs poised for Comeback in the US: Why? Technology vastly improved from past Fuel economy– 20-40 percent better More consumer friendly – noise, smoke, odor Performance: faster acceleration than gasoline Diesels require no sacrifice in performance/utility – towing, hauling, etc. Good Progress on meeting more stringent emissions challenges Gasoline- diesel equivalent standards 2004-2007; Cleaner diesel fuel available --mid-late 2006 Increasing consumer and societal demands Sustained higher gasoline prices Reliance on imported oil, energy conservation Need for near-term energy conservation strategy prior to wide scale adoption of fuel cells/hydrogen in 2050 (NAS, 2004) Global warming Clean Diesel for Cleaner Air:  Clean Diesel for Cleaner Air More fuel efficient = less fuel burned = fewer emissions. Diesels inherently low in primary ingredient of ozone – hydrocarbons; also low in carbon monoxide. Cleaner fuels and new emissions filter technology reduce particulates and NOx emissions Diesel cars, trucks and SUVs small contributors to emissions inventory: (Source US EPA Trends Report, 2003) 0.05 % NOx; 0.02% PM2.5; 0.038% VOCs The Diesel Emissions Challenge: Progress & Potential:  The Diesel Emissions Challenge: Progress & Potential Nitrogen Oxides Particulate Matter Clean Diesel Engines Save Energy:  Clean Diesel Engines Save Energy On average, clean diesel engine gets 20-40 percent better mpg than gasoline counterpart Some reports of 63 percent better Current diesel models earn 3 of top 10 highest DOE/EPA fuel economy ratings Modern Clean Diesel Technology:  Modern Clean Diesel Technology Higher Fuel Efficiency Means Reduced Dependence on Foreign Oil Lower Global Warming Emissions Saving 350,000 Barrels of Oil/Day Through Expanded Use of Light Duty Clean Diesel Engines Over 20% Fewer Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Diesel vs. Gasoline Slide18:  Fuel Consumption Diesel vs. Gasoline Remark: Comparable engine rating/displacement in each vehicle class The Diesel Engine of Tomorrow 10 20 30 40 50 MPG Minivan Compact SUV Diesel Gasoline Gasoline Diesel Diesel Gasoline Delta CO2 26 % 45 % 28 % Slide used with permission of Robert Bosch Corp. www.bosch.com Diesel Fuel: More energy than gasoline, Familiar, available, getting cleaner:  Diesel Fuel: More energy than gasoline, Familiar, available, getting cleaner 10-12 % more energy per gallon than gasoline; According to EPA, available at about 1/3 of all fueling stations today. Same infrastructure, tanks etc as gasoline; easy to increase capacity and availability Diesel cars and SUVs fill up less often– higher range per tank.. > 600 miles Cleaner diesel fuel (lower sulfur 500 -15 ppm) required nationwide mid-2006. What cars, light trucks and SUVs have a diesel engine option today? :  What cars, light trucks and SUVs have a diesel engine option today? Introduced 2003 or before Chevrolet Silverado GMC Sierra Dodge Ram Ford E-Series Ford Excursion Ford F-Series Volkswagen Jetta Volkswagen Golf Volkswagen Beetle New for 2004 Dodge Sprinter Mercedes Benz E-320 CDI Volkswagen Passat Volkswagen Touareg COMING Fall 2004 Jeep Liberty Because of fuel efficiency and performance, diesel engines share of market is growing in US:  Because of fuel efficiency and performance, diesel engines share of market is growing in US The Global Outlook For Diesel:  The Global Outlook For Diesel Penetration of Personal Vehicle Sales (%) Diesel’s popularity in Western Europe - 2003 courtesy of European Automobile Manufacturers Association www.acea.org:  Diesel’s popularity in Western Europe - 2003 courtesy of European Automobile Manufacturers Association www.acea.org Light-Duty diesel vehicles should be Part of National Energy Strategy:  Light-Duty diesel vehicles should be Part of National Energy Strategy Diesel powered cars, trucks and SUVs offer near-term energy efficiency benefits. California Air Resources Board California Energy Commission Environmental Protection Agency National Academy of Sciences US Department of Energy Energy Information Administration Diesels should qualify for Incentive Tax Credits Clean Diesel Vehicles :  Clean Diesel Vehicles Clean Diesel technology is a proven, efficient and affordable means of reducing petroleum consumption now. Advanced emissions control systems will effectively address particulate and NOx emissions; New diesels are nothing like the old diesels: quiet, no smoke, great power and performance, and fuel efficiency.
