The internal combustion engine has made important contributions to the modern industrial and social development. Its superior performance, rang of power outputs, and flexibility make the internal combustion engine widely used in different industrial and transportation power systems. This presentation will discuss how to address the challenges of climate change and the opportunities presented by electrification and AI, how to further improve the overall efficiency of internal combustion power systems and achieve ultra-low and zero pollutant emissions, and how to effectively utilize renewable fuels and Zero-carbon fuels to a net zero future based on full life cycle assessment. Speaker: Professor Hua Zhao, Brunel University, UK. Professor Zhao is currently the interim Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research at Brunel University London, having recently served as the Vice Provost and Dean of College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences. He is a Fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) and a Foreign Member of Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), and a Fellow of Society of Automobile Engineering (SAE) in US. He is also the President of Association of British Chinese Professors (ABCP). Professor Zhao graduated from Tianjin University and got his PhD from the University of Leeds. He then worked as a research fellow at Cambridge University and Imperial College London. Since 1994, he has been working at Brunel University London and leading the Centre for Advanced Powertrain and Fuels with over 20 Doctoral and Postdoctoral Researchers. Professor Zhao has published over 400 papers and 6 books and supervised over 40 PhD students. His research covers both Spark Ignition (SI) and Compression Ignition (CI) Engines for on and off-road vehicles, power generation sets and marine applications, including the low carbon and zero carbon fuels. He has involved in over 100 projects with support from a number of UK funding bodies, EU, and industrial companies.
