The developing of gasoline particulate filters for 2017 model year light vehicles. These filters are designed for gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines to reduce particulate emissions in compliance with the Euro 6C emissions regulation, which takes effect on September 1st 2017.
Systems integration and advanced manufacturing capabilities, we provide customers flexible solutions for any powertrain to meet regulations without compromising vehicle performance or durability. GDI engines help improve fuel economy and therefore refuse CO2 emissions however, they can have higher particulate emissions due to shorter fuel/air mixing times in the cylinder compared to multiport fuel injection engines.
Advanced fuel injection strategies are currently used to control gasoline particulate emissions in cylinder but they are designed for a particular emission test cycle and may be less effective under real driving conditions. Gasoline particulate filters effectively control particulate emissions under all opening conditions.
