Notice Pursuant to the National Cooperative Research And 
Production Act of 1993--Cooperative Research Group on Advanced Engine 
Fluids

    Notice is hereby given that, on March 20, 2015, pursuant to Section 
6(a) of the National Cooperative Research and Production Act of 1993, 
15 U.S.C. 4301 et seq. (``the Act''), Southwest Research Institute--
Cooperative Research Group on Advanced Engine Fluids (``AEF'') has 
filed written notifications simultaneously with the Attorney General 
and the Federal Trade Commission disclosing (1) the identities of the 
parties to the venture and (2) the nature and objectives of the 
venture. The notifications were filed for the purpose of invoking the 
Act's provisions limiting the recovery of antitrust plaintiffs to 
actual damages under specified circumstances.
    Pursuant to Section 6(b) of the Act, the identities of the parties 
to the venture are: Caterpillar Inc., Lafayette, IN; Cummins Inc., 
Columbus, IN; ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Co., Paulsboro, NJ; 
Infineum USA L.P., Linden, NJ; Sasol Technology (PTY) Ltd., Rosebank, 
SOUTH AFRICA; Total Marketing Services, Puteaux, FRANCE; and Toyota 
Motor Corp., Shizuoka, JAPAN. The general area of AEF's planned 
activity is to develop a fundamental understanding of the interaction 
between fuel and lubricant properties and engine operation, 
particularly for advanced engine technologies that are moving toward 
production. The focus of the program will be to develop and apply 
advanced analytical methods to investigate the detailed chemical and 
physical interactions between the combustion system and the fuels and 
lubricants. Initial projects focus on four distinct areas: (1) 
Investigation of the fundamental processes causing LSPI and potential 
mitigation strategies through controls and hardware optimization; (2) 
investigation of fuel octane, physical properties, and chemistry on 
knock resistance and engine efficiency; (3) evaluation of the impact of 
dual-fuel combustion strategies on lubricating oil performance and 
chemistry; and (4) evaluation of alternative fuel chemistry and 
properties on engine efficiency and performance.

Director of Civil Enforcement, Antitrust Division.
