Program Description

Industrial Diesel Technology is the testing, repair, and maintenance of large diesel industrial engines. Modern direct-injection industrial diesel engines produce low amounts of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and unburned hydrocarbons. The U.S. Department of Energy is working with engine manufacturers and fuel suppliers to develop diesel engine technology to produce very low emissions of reactive nitrogen compounds (i.e., NOx) and particulate matter (i.e., PM). As lower emission diesel technology becomes a reality, diesel technologists with training in the new processes are needed.
