May 13 to 15, 2019 in Aachen, Germany

The International Conference of the Cluster of Excellence The Fuel Science Center will take place in the Eurogress in Aachen, already held for the 7th time. Scientists from all over the world are expected in Aachen during these days to present and discuss their latest results in the field of fuel development.

In the last years, the conference has shown well the interdisciplinary work of the last Cluster of Excellence Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass. And yet again, the program covers a wide range of contributions from various disciplines.

The event is open to participants from science and industry interested in challenges and solutions regarding novel biofuels and synthetic fuels from renewable energy and alternative carbon sources. The conference focuses on biofuel production, the conversion of regenerative electricity and various carbon sources to novel synthetic fuels, and the combustion processes of such fuels.


Call for Papers and Posters

With the "Call for Papers and Posters", scientists and industry representatives are invited to enrich the conference with a lecture or poster on their work. Until February 17th , 2019, it was possible to register for the lecture session or poster party with an abstract.

The following topics will be addressed in separate sessions during the conference:

  • Synthetic, alternative fuels by utilization of regenerative electricity and carbon dioxide
  • System perspective & sustainable value chains
  • Impact of renewable fuels on environment, economics, and society
  • Catalytic synthesis and conversion of biomass-based streams in combination with other renewable resources to platform molecules and fuels
  • Combustion process and exhaust gas aftertreatment optimization of renewable fuels
  • Mixture formation and ignition process of renewable fuels

Keynote Speakers

The conference sessions will be complemented by keynote lectures from experts of all addressed disciplines.
