Joint Final Event PaREGEn & PEMs4Nano

On behalf of the partners in PaREGEn and PEMs4Nano, two H2020 projects, we would like to invite you to the Joint Final Event on November 12th & 13th 2019. The final event will be hosted by Applus IDIADA in Santa Oliva near Barcelona, Spain.

Our programme will allow you to take a close look at the latest developments. You will be able to see new gasoline combustion engine technology in action on a test bench. During a test drive you can measure 10 nm particle emissions real-time. State-of-the-art simulations will allow you to dive into the fundamental mechanisms behind these technologies. There will be various product demonstrations on an extensive exhibition. And any question you may still have, will be answered during the technical presentations, that may include live scientific measurements.

Get active and join us; we are looking forward to meeting you there!

RICARDO – Dr. Simon Edwards
“The PaREGEn project started almost three years ago now. Since then, new components plus engines have been developed, and installed in our demonstrator vehicles: these are now being calibrated, tested and compared against baselines, to establish the CO2 savings and emissions compliance achieved. During the same time, we have devised new optical measurement procedures to study the causes for and the evolution of particles within the combustion cylinders, and developed simulation tools in order to be able to predict particulate emissions, across a widde range of conditions and in real-time on the vehicle. We are now almost ready to show you the results of all this work:the PaREGEn consortium team would like to welcome you at our Joint Final Event later this year, when all the results will be presented, the hardware and software exhibited and the potential implact of our research and innovations discussed.”   

HORIBA – Prof. Dr. Marcus Rieker
“The aim of the PEMs4Nano project is to develop a new generation of PN-PEMS (Particle Number Portable Emission Measurement System) that are able to measure particle sizes down to 10 nm reliably an reproducibly. This includes a deep understanding of the particle propagation mechanisms as well as of the measurement procedures. To meet these requirements in the last 3 years we have intensively dealt with topics like chemical particle characterization, simulation and measurement technology. Through this holistic approach it was possible to develop different prototypes to support the engine development in the laboratory as well as for vehicle validation measuring real-driving emissions on the road.
At the final event in cooperation with PaREGEn we will present the results of the project. In addition to live demonstrations of the prototypes, the experts from the various key areas will be present and available for discussions. I hope to see you in Barcelona in November.”
