Helping to create greener roadways by addressing technology advancement barriers

Our areas of focus

CanmetENERGY Ottawa’s Transportation program focuses on research and development (R&D) in electrification and controlling emissions from advanced internal combustion engines (ICEs). Currently, we are focused on:

  • electrification: reducing technical barriers to the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) by investigating the suitability of clean technologies to replace diesel and gasoline in specific applications in on-road and off-road segments, including their impact on the electrical grid
  • emissions control for advanced ICEs: developing and commercializing intellectual property that controls emissions from advanced ICEs powered by conventional and low-carbon fuels (including methane slip from lean-burn natural gas engines, black carbon emissions from diesel engines, and the simultaneous removal of black carbon and NOx from diesel exhaust) 

Transportation projects at CanmetENERGY in Ottawa

To address the areas of focus listed above, CanmetENERGY Ottawa is currently involved in the following projects related to transportation:
