Garrett Develops Ultra Responsive Boosting System to Support Next Wave of Global CO2 Emission Targets
- New boosting solution pairs with lean Miller Cycle combustion in gasoline engines
- Garrett solution helps to deliver 15% CO2 reduction for EU sponsored project
Garrett has created a new boosting system with greatly improved transient response as part of an international team of industry and research organizations participating in the Particle Reduced, Efficient Gasoline Engine (PaREGEn) project – part of the EU Horizon 2020 Programme –developed to pioneer a new generation of low CO2 emitting gasoline engines for mid-level to premium vehicles.
The project, involving 17 of the world’s leading automotive organisations, led to the development of a turbocharged advanced Miller Cycle combustion engine which is on track to deliver the same performance as a baseline Jaguar XE 2.0 litre vehicle but with a 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions, complying with upcoming EU6d RDE requirements and with particulates measured down to 10 nanometres in size.
