Saudi Aramco and a number of Chinese companies, including Tsinghua University and Shandong Chambroad Petrochemical Company, announced on Friday the launch of a research program aimed at improving fuel, engines and using post-processing technologies, reported the Saudi Press Agency.

This is the first time that a major energy company, motor manufacturer, petrochemical company and prestigious university work together to develop advanced fuel and engine technologies to reduce emissions.

This collaboration aims at developing low-emission engines and fuel technologies that will keep pace with more stringent emission regulations.

Under this research program, Saudi Aramco will introduce new fuel formulations that support its leading gasoline-ignition combustion technology and will develop carbon sequestration techniques to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
