Engine Research Facility
Argonne's Engine Research Facility allows scientists and engineers to study in-cylinder combustion and emissions under realistic operating conditions. The size of engines in the facility range from automobile- to locomotive-sized, as well as stationary electric power production engines. Argonne's goal is improve engine performance and reliability, increase fuel efficiency, reduce harmful exhaust emissions, and evaluate new technologies to determine their technical feasibility and commercial viability. In addition, Argonne is conducting research on sustainable renewable fuels used in these engines.
