Argonne helps China create cleaner Beijing for 2008 Olympics
Date:10/9/2007

The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory is working closely with Chinese scientists and policy makers toward the goal of creating a cleaner Beijing and developing sustainable technologies for the 2008 Olympic Games and beyond.

Recently, DOE and China's Ministry of Science and Technology announced a five-year agreement aimed at promoting large scale deployment of next-generation vehicle technologies. The benefits of the collaboration include clean, energy efficient transportation, addressing climate change, promoting energy security and sustaining economic growth.

The United States and China are working together to solve global energy and environmental problems," said Larry Johnson, Director of Argonne's Transportation Technology R&D Center. "Our business-as-usual forecast is that by 2020 China will sell more cars and trucks than the U.S., and by 2030 will have more vehicles on the road than the U.S. As China and the U.S. become the two dominant countries in oil use and greenhouse gas emissions, we need to work together on advanced transportation technologies."

China is ideally situated to adopt alternative vehicles because it must establish an infrastructure to handle the demands of future transportation regardless of fuel source or technology. Since 2003 Argonne and DOE have been working with the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) to promote energy-efficient vehicle technologies and clean transportation fuels in China. The benefits of the partnership, however, go far beyond any one country's borders. "Helping create energy-efficient and clean transportation benefits the entire world," explained Johnson.

CATARC, as well as a number of universities and companies, use Argonne's award winning software, Powertrain System Analysis Toolkit (PSAT) and Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation (GREET) models for evaluation of China's existing vehicles, underst
