General Motors Joins Model Fuels Consortium
06 August 2007
General Motors has joined the Model Fuels Consortium (MFC), an industry effort to develop, validate and apply advanced simulation methods that can improve engine and fuel design resulting in increased fuel efficiencies and reduced emissions. (Earlier post.)
General Motors joins existing members Chevron, Conoco-Phillips, Cummins Engine Company, Dow Chemical Company, Ford Motor Company, Honda, L’Institut Français du Pétrole, Mazda, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan, PSA Peugeot Citroën, and Toyota.
With the addition of GM, the MFC boasts two of the ‘Detroit Three’ automakers and a majority of the Japanese auto manufacturers.
We are especially interested in the development and application of advanced kinetic simulation tools developed by Reaction Design that have the potential to give us added flexibility in evaluating existing engine designs and new combustion concepts.—Dr. Gary Smyth, lab director of GM Research & Development, Powertrain Systems Research Lab
When companies do this, they proudly issue a press release.
When an individual does it, he's warned he'll go blind and grow hair on his palms.
