New Engine Technology Forum Debuts

The Diesel Technology Forum has evolved into the Engine Technology Forum, Inc. to focus on new ICE and diesel opportunities.

The board of directors of the Diesel Technology Forum (DTF) announced that effective Oct. 2, the DTF has evolved into the Engine Technology Forum, Inc. (ETF). Building off of two-plus decades around the transformation of diesel technology, the scope, mission and vision of the organization have expanded, the group said.

According to the ETF, the change recognizes the new opportunities and challenges for diesel as well as other internal combustion engines and fuels in powering key sectors of the global economy while contributing to reduced greenhouse gases and other emissions.

“Internal combustion engines (ICE) like diesel, gasoline, and natural gas are the fundamental power behind our economy and mobility. Continued innovations in efficiency, lower emissions, new engine designs and new fuels offer tremendous promise for the future of ICE technology and helping meet our societal goals,” says ETF Executive Director Allen Schaeffer.

The new Engine Technology Forum is a place for fact-based discussions as well as debate about all options for meeting our energy, environmental and economic goals, the organization said. ETF will work with all stakeholders including government, industry, environmental and community groups seeking solutions to reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions. ETF’s work encompasses freight transport, agriculture, construction, mining as well as other industrial and commercial applications.

ETF’s members represent all aspects of internal combustion engine industry including engine, vehicle and equipment manufacturers, emissions control and other component suppliers, as well as petroleum, renewable fuel producers, specialty chemical companies along with their allied organizations.

Through education, outreach, research, and collaboration, ETF, a 501c(6) organization will raise awareness that internal combustion engines, vehicles, equipment and technology using renewable and other fuels, are valued options that can contribute to decarbonizing key sectors of the economy, ETF said.
