The Future of Diesel Technology – Part 2 will feature leaders from Cummins, Deere, and Neste to explore meeting efficiency and emissions challenges, hybridization, and renewable biofuels.

The Diesel Technology Forum (DTF) announced an upcoming event, second in a two-part series, that will explore the future for diesel technology in all applications. The virtual session will be held Tuesday, November 10, 2020 from 2-3 PM ET.

“The prospect and promise of new fuels and technologies is a topic of great discussion today, just as the challenges of the future are formidable,” said Allen Schaeffer, executive director of DTF. “Reducing environmental and climate impacts and meeting customer demands for more efficiency and productivity is the challenge for the future for all manufacturers and fuel providers. This session will highlight how diesel technology and fuels are evolving, improving, and prepared to meet those challenges such that diesel will continue to play a dominant role in key sectors of the economy.”

“Our session will explore the innovations in technologies to achieve even lower emissions and greater efficiency including how renewable biofuels play a role as well as hybridization of engines, equipment, and machines,” said Schaeffer. “Diesel has always been a technology of continuous improvement and innovation, and we are fortunate for this session to have industry leaders Cummins, Deere, and Neste share their perspectives on technology development, regulatory influences, and customer demands driving the advanced diesel powertrains and fuels of the future.”

Speakers include:

  • Wayne Eckerle, vice president of research, Cummins
  • Michael Lefebvre, worldwide manager - marketing, John Deere Power Systems
