Though the Society for Automotive Engineers (SAE) once boasted an active University of Houston student chapter, the organization has been dormant on the UH campus for several years. Now, a group of dedicated Cullen College of Engineering students are bringing the student organization back to campus and into the fast lane – literally.

Much of this diesel emissions reduction research will be conducted at the Texas Center for Clean Engines, Emissions and Fuels, a UH-based center dedicated to developing and testing advanced power-train, renewable or alternative fuels and emission control systems for local, state and federal governments as well as the energy, engine and emission control industries.

One of the ironies of automobile research: as diesel engines become more fuel efficient, reducing their emissions becomes more challenging.

Better efficiency means that more of the energy in diesel fuel is being used to move the vehicle and less is escaping out the tailpipe in the form of heat. While this is undoubtedly good, it presents a challenge for emissions reduction.
