Clean Combustion Engine Lab (CCEL)

Based at the University of Windsor, the Clean Combustion Engine Lab (CCEL) aims to develop sustainable heat engines with improved efficiency and reduced exhaust pollutant emissions by using innovative technologies.

CCEL has engaged in 56 research projects in the past 16 years, of which half were supported by government agencies such as the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), Ontario Research Funds, AUTO21, and BioFuelNet Canada. The other half of CCEL’s projects have involved collaboration with industrial partners such as Ford, Chrysler, Navistar Inc., and Imperial Oil Ltd.
