“The future for internal combustion engines depends on innovations in combustion and the quality and performance of the fuels that they use,” said Andrew McKnight, Innospec’s vice president of technical services. “Innospec’s Fuel Specialties fuel additives deliver a wide range of solutions designed to enhance fuel quality. As the industry leader and pioneer in the design, development and production of innovative fuel-additive technology, our team focuses on the high-performance premium diesel, biodiesel and gasoline markets. Innospec is pleased to join other industry leaders in the DTF working to advance the future for clean diesel and other advanced internal combustion engines.”
Allen Schaeffer, DTF’s executive director, added, “We’re looking forward to having a global technology and fuel-performance leader like Innospec providing valuable insights to our evolving forum. Innospec is a key player in all diesel applications—marine, rail and land transport. Everything about internal combustion engines depends on the fuels that they use. To deliver maximum performance, modern diesel- and gasoline-powered engines need the very best fuels. Low-quality fuels can compromise vehicle operations. They impact power, increase engine noise, and affect fuel economy.”
Schaeffer continued, saying, “Going forward, both renewable and conventional liquid fuels for advanced internal combustion engines must be high-performing and enable achieving even lower-emission levels as well as greater efficiency over a wide variety of operating conditions. Whether traditional petroleum fuels or renewable biodiesel fuels, having the right fuel performance will ensure a bright future for internal combustion engines.”
Innospec’s U.S. operations are based in Englewood, Colorado.
