Southwest Research Institute has been selected by R&D Magazine to receive an R&D 100 award. The competition, held annually, recognizes the 100 most significant technical accomplishments of the year.
SwRI earned recognition for the "Diesel Fuel Ignition Quality Tester (IQTtm)." The IQT is a new device for determining diesel fuel quality. The technology for the IQT was developed by SwRI and commercialized and manufactured by Advanced Engine Technology, Ltd., of Nepean, Ontario, Canada.
The award will be formally presented in October at a banquet and ceremony to be held in Chicago. The Institute has previously won 23 R&D 100 awards.
