IASTEC – The International Association of Sustainable Drivetrain and Vehicle Technology Research
The International Association of Sustainable Drivetrain and Vehicle Technology Research, IASTEC (in the process of founding) is an international association of professors and researchers worldwide working on vehicle and drivetrain research at famous universities. The purpose of IASTEC is to promote science, research and teaching in the field of vehicle and drivetrain technology.
The members of IASTEC develop innovative vehicle concepts and systems as well as various sustainable drivetrain technologies (battery electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles and engine technology for CO2-neutral reFuels, which are synthetic electric power based eFuels as well as biogenic fuels, also known as bioFuels) and promote a CO2-neutral mobility system of the future without fossil energy sources or fossil energy supply.
With this position paper, the signees address the urgent need for technological openness for propulsion technology for ground vehicles in order to reduce CO2 emission from fossil energy sources on a global basis and fast. This position paper is directed at political decision-makers, investors, and also interested citizens.
