The Future Combustion Engine Power Plant (FCEP) research program in Finland belongs to the Cluster of Energy and Environment (CLEEN Ltd, concurrently CLIC Innovation), which aims at maintaining and developing an open innovation platform for market-driven joint research between industry and academia. Work Package 4 (WP4) of FCEP focused on fuel flexibility in combustion engines. In this work, fossil, bio, and other alternative fuels (LNG) were considered for engine power plants, ships, and high-speed engine at least for the next 40 yr. The quality of fuels was considered together with the needs of engine and emissions control technologies. The main results of the fuel flexibility-related issues of FCEP WP4.
