Saudi Aramco and Chinese entities Tsinghua University, FAW Jiefang Automotive Wuxi Diesel Works (FAWDE), and Shandong Chambroad Petrochemicals Company announced the start of a research programme dedicated to fuel and engine optimisation, and exhaust after-treatment technologies.

The cooperation aims to develop ultra-low emission fuel and engine technologies that would meet the most stringent future emission regulations.

Under the research programme, Saudi Aramco will propose new fuel formulations, support its flagship technology ‘Gasoline Compression Ignition’, and further develop mobile carbon capture technologies as a viable route to achieve lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Chambroad Petrochemical will conduct refinery modelling, techno-economic analysis, and produce new fuels for testing. And FAWDE will provide prototype engines and after-treatment systems, as well as conduct system integration and vehicle demonstration.

This collaboration aligns with the partners’ strategic intent to create solutions for CO2 reduction taking total emissions into consideration, while delivering efficient, reliable engine and fuel performance.
