About the West Virginia University Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions (CAFEE)
A non-profit research center operating within academic surroundings, West Virginia University's Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions (CAFEE) is an internationally recognized research program in the area of vehicles, engines, emissions and alternative fuels. CAFEE is a large research center involving over 50 faculty, staff, and graduate students, which have been conducting research specifically focused on fuels, engines and exhaust emissions since 1990.
Since its inception, the Center has conducted hundreds of research projects with total funding of over $80 million. The projects were or currently are sponsored by fuel suppliers (BP, ARCO, Chevron, Biodiesel Board and others), engine manufacturers (Cummins, Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel and others), vehicle manufacturers (Ford, GM and others), Federal Government Agencies (DOE, DOT, EPA, DARPA and others) and State Agencies (California ARB, Arizona DEQ, NY DEQ, TCEQ and others). These projects have addressed issues associated with the full spectrum of fuel, engine and vehicle performance. Emissions are measured in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR 40) requirements for engine certification, which is used primarily for fuels testing, certification and verification procedures for the states of California and Texas.
