Heavy Duty Diesel Sustainable Symposium 2

SAE's Heavy-Duty Diesel Sustainable Transport Symposium to return in May 2023

Dec. 12, 2022
After a several-year hiatus, SAE's sustainability and technology event is returning to connect engineers with automakers, suppliers, government agencies, more.

As sustainable technology has continued to become a highlight at returning transportation shows, SAE International’s Heavy-Duty Diesel Sustainable Transport Symposium is set to return after a five-year hiatus. While the event has not been held since 2018, Gothenburg, Sweden, will host the symposium from May 3-4, 2023, with the intent of covering new and future regulations, emission control technology, and alternative powertrains. In addition, networking events will allow engineers to connect with automakers, suppliers, government agencies, and more.

The event will be held at the Chalmers Lindholmen Conference Center, with Lars Stenqvist, executive VP of Volvo Group Trucks Technology and chief technology officer of the Volvo group, presenting the keynote address on May 3.

Beyond the keynote speakers, the symposium will cover multiple session topics over the course two days, including:

  • Regulatory Updates
  • CO2 Challenge
  • Ultra-Low NOX
  • OEM Update
  • Future Propulsion
  • Electrification
  • Catalysts
  • Impact of Fuel Source on Vehicle Development

Specifically, the conferences agenda will include five sessions per day as follows:


  • Challenges of Global Regulations and Starndards Outlook HDD101
  • Welcome Opening and Keynote HDD100
  • Emission Control Systems – Catalysts and Substrates HDD 104
  • ICE Powertrain Technology Trends – Share over Time of ICE, Fuel Cells, Batteries, Emission Targets HDD103
  • Technologies/Solutions for Future Emission Standards Euro VII HDD102


  • Alternative Technologies (Battering, Fuel Cells, H2) HDD201
  • Welcome and Opening HDD200
  • Impact of C02 Regulation and Alternative Fuels on Emissions (incl H2 ICE) HDD202
  • Panel Discussion on Sustainable Transport HDD204
  • Sustainability of Truck Mobility (LCA, Recycling) – Life Cycle of C02 Emissions to Reach Neutrality Current Status, Future Needs, Outlook HDD203

Early-bird registration is currently in effect and will last until April 4, 2023. During this period, engineers and participants in the heavy-duty industry may register for $1,250 if they are SAE members and $1,650 if they are not. After the early April date, pricing for both brackets will increase by $200. Either way, those who wish to participate must log in with their SAE ID or create a free SAE account to register.

Any exhibitors who wish to be at the symposium will need to pay $3,300 per tabletop space reserved, which will grant them one 6-ft. table; two chairs; one full conference registration including all technology sessions, lunches, the reception, and networking; and company recognition in the event’s program or mobile app and the online exhibitor directory.
