Cross-Cut Lean Exhaust Emissions Reduction Simulations
CLEERS is a R&D focus project of the Diesel Cross-Cut Team. The overall objective is to promote development of improved computational tools for simulating realistic full-system performance of lean-burn engines and the associated emissions control systems.Specific sub-objectives are:
CLEERS is coordinated by a subcommittee of industry, government, and academic representatives reporting to the Diesel Cross-Cut Team. Sponsored activities include a website and technical exchange workshops.
CLEERS is coordinated by a subcommitte appointed by the Diesel Cross-Cut Team
The DOE Advanced Engine Cross-Cutting Technology Development Team
The DOE Advanced Engine Cross-Cutting Technology Development Team (known as the Crosscut Team for short) is composed of representatives from heavy duty engine manufacturers, automotive companies, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The primary function of the Crosscut Team is to coordinate development efforts for advanced, low-emission, high-efficiency lean-burn engines. This role includes identification and prioritization of specific R&D projects appropriate for government funding.
The Crosscut Team provides a direct interface between the automotive and heavy duty engine manufacturers and includes members of the Automotive Research Advanced Combustion & Emission Control (ACEC) Team from the U.S. Driving Research and Innovation for Vehicle efficiency and Energy sustainability (U.S. DRIVE) Partnership. This organizational structure provides a mechanism for efficient and productive interactions among industry, government, and national labs in addressing strategic energy and emissions control issues now facing the U.S. transportation sector.
