10th International AVL Exhaust Gas and Particulate Emissions Forum

20th - 21st of February, 2018

Forum am Schlosspark, Ludwigsburg, Germany

Online Registration

The combustion engine has come under considerable pressure in the public due to its emissions. This has been initiated to a large degree, by the diesel exhaust gas scandal. Subsequently, some cities are currently discussing a ban on vehicles.

On the legislative side, the introduction of RDE lies ahead of us. Furthermore, in the US, an optional legislation in the commercial vehicle sector includes a reduction of the NOx emissions limit by the factor of 10. It can be assumed that this will become a worldwide standard in a few years. Even the Chinese legislation will become increasingly strict.

All of these trends lead to significantly increasing requirements to the engine and the exhaust aftertreatment. In the future, various performance-enhancing measures will no longer be possible. The increasing effort of the exhaust aftertreatment and the growing cost pressure could lead to an overall abandonment of the diesel engine in certain vehicle segments. Additionally, the requirements concerning the measurement technology will increase.

Apart from the ongoing development of conventional technologies and besides increasing electrification, further solutions can be found, for example, in the usage of alternative fuels which have positive effect on emissions. They can be regeneratively produced using solar and wind power and therefore enable CO2 free mobility.

We would like to actively discuss these topics with you at the 10th International AVL Exhaust Gas and Particulate Emissions Forum in Ludwigsburg, Germany. You can look forward to an informative and engaging conference, with expert speeches, an extensive exchange with industry specialists and network at our renowned evening event.

On behalf of the program committee,

Peter Eilts
