Study on Clean and Ultra-High-Efficiency Internal Combustion Engines for the Next Generation

The HEET Research Center contributes to preventing global warming and mitigating energy resource depletion by conducting research aimed at reducing friction generation in various internal combustion engine components. It also aims at reducing cooling losses occurring primarily in combustion chamber, and to utilizing hydrogen as a fuel that can be created primarily from renewable energy sources without also producing CO2 emissions.
