AVL LIST GmbH is the world’s largest privately owned and independent company for the development of powertrain systems as well as simulation, instrumentation and test systems. AVL has about 3800 employees in Graz (over 700 graduated engineers) and a global network of 65 representations and affiliates resulting in more than 7500 employees worldwide. AVL´s Powertrain Engineering division activities are focused on the research, design and development of various powertrains in the view of low fuel consumption, low emission, low noise and improved drivability. The Advanced Simulation Technologies division develops and markets the simulation methods which are necessary for the powertrain development work. The Instrumentation and Test Systems division is an established manufacturer and provider of instruments and systems for powertrain and vehicle testing including combustion diagnostic sensors, optical systems as well as complete engine, powertrain and vehicle test beds. AVL supplies advanced development and testing solutions for conventional and hybrid vehicle components and systems like simulation platforms, development tools and system integration tools.

AVL contributes with the thermodynamic layout and optimization for both a gas engine operated with bio-methane and a Diesel engine which additionally can be operated in a dual-fuel combustion mode considering Diesel fuel and a mixture of HVO and Ethanol. The exact fuel options will be part of the project and defined in an early phase of the project. For the diesel engine the complete combustion concept will be developed. Furthermore, AVL coordinates the aftertreatment system topics. The technical work on exhaust aftertreatment focuses on the development of kinetic models for partly new catalysts, such as e.g. passive NOx adsorbers, which also consider poisoning effects. Based on such new developments complete aftertreatmet system models are set up and provided to partners who integrate them into vehicle models. Based on such models e.g. new control concepts are developed. AVL coordinates a Use Case regarding emission reduction.
