The subject will be addressed from many different perspectives such as the economic context and regulations, fuel specifications and production in the refining industry, engines and post-treatment systems design, vehicles hybridization, biofuels, mobility of tomorrow. The evaluation will include a “serious game” designed as a video game: you will optimize the fuel production in a refinery and also the engine settings to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions.
