Mission and Objectives

AMF is one of the actors putting transport on track to sustainability and reducing the environmental impacts from transport. Established in 1984, AMF has a strong international network that serves to foster collaborative research, development, and deployment (RD&D) and to provide unbiased information on clean, energy-efficient, and sustainable fuels and related engine and vehicle technology.


Advanced motor fuels, applicable to all modes of transport, significantly contribute to a sustainable society around the globe.

AMF brings stakeholders from different continents together for pooling and leveraging of knowledge and research capabilities in the field of advanced and sustainable transport fuels. Our cooperation enables an exchange of best practices. With our broad geographical representation, we are able to take regional and local conditions into consideration when developing policy briefs and facilitating deployment of new fuel and engine technologies.


The mission of AMF is to advance the understanding and appreciation of the potential of advanced motor fuels towards transport sustainability. We provide sound scientific information and technology assessments facilitating informed and science-based decisions regarding advanced motor fuels on all levels of decision-making.

AMF provides technology analysis and policy recommendations to support achieving energy policy and environmental sustainability goals. AMF initiates new activities and generates first hand data, whether through cost sharing, task sharing, or a combination of these two modes. Cost-shared activities enable AMF to quickly react to new developments, if necessary. New Tasks can be initiated either top-down or bottom-up and it takes three contracting parties to start up a Task. Task reports and key messages are published on the AMF website immediately after completion, and feed into related IEA publications. AMF thus contributes to IEA´s authority on technology analysis, strengthens the IEA’s position as a key global clean energy hub, and helps IEA Members and Partner countries to advance the global agenda for energy innovation.
