Powering Possibilities at SAE 2016




The theme for the 2016 Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) World Congress and Exhibition is “Powering Possibilities” and Aramco’s strong fuels research and development program is a natural fit for technical sessions, particularly in the area of propulsion/powertrain.  Panel discussions and keynote topics allow Aramco researchers to contribute to discussions on the adoption of efficient, sustainable and affordable transport solutions for the future.   
 
As an energy company with a deep understanding of how fuels are refined, we bring a unique perspective to how fuels and engines can be matched to create the fuels and engines of the future.  SAE provides the right venue to illustrate our commitment to fuels innovation and improving the efficiency of current engines and fuels. 



Check out the conference program for several technical papers presented by staff from Saudi Aramco’s Research & Development Center (R&DC), the Aramco Research Center-Detroit, the Aramco Fuel Research Center-Paris (located at  IFPen), and also researchers from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).

Aramco Technical Presentations During SAE 2016
 
This year’s SAE theme is “Powering Possibilities” and Aramco’s strong R&D is a natural fit for technical sessions, particularly propulsion/powertrain.  Furthermore, panel discussions and keynote topics allow Aramco researchers to contribute to discussions on the adoption of efficient, sustainable and affordable transport solutions for the future.   Many of our researchers have participated in the peer-review process for SAE conference papers this year and have increased the company’s visibility in the area of fuels research with technical papers.      
 
With the recent United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP 21) there is heightened awareness for carbon footprint reduction, especially from the transportation section.  As an energy company with a deep understanding of how fuels are refined, we bring a unique perspective to how fuels and engines can be matched to create the fuels and engines of the future.  SAE provides the right venue to illustrate our commitment to fuels innovation and improving the efficiency of current engines and fuels.
