By unlocking the power of plasma we can reduce energy demand of existing processes, increase productivity, reduce emissions and environmental impact, and create innovative new surface treatments.

Our Applications


using nanosecond pulsed power technology demonstrate significantly improved performance and reduced ecological impact over current solutions.

Our Applications


help resolve conflicts of current technologies and processes and their ecological impact.

By unlocking the power of plasma we can reduce energy demand of existing processes, increase process outputs, reduce emissions and environmental impact, and create new industrial treatments and/or materials.




IgnitionSolution

Boost the Efficiencies of internal combustion engines with Nanosecond Pulsed Power Plasma Ignition Solution


Measured improvement in fuel economy


Measured improved fuel flexibility


Reduced ignition delays


NOx emissions reduced


Improved spark plug lifetime


Demonstrated in numerous peer reviewed publications


Rising industrialization will likely lead to 120 million new registrations, at least 75% of them for vehicles based on combustion engines, by the year 2030. In addition to the Miller combustion cycle, the industry needs engines that employ strongly charge-diluted combustion to achieve efficiencies significantly above 40%. Instrumental in this will be ignition processes with great potential to shift ignition limits.

The question we have to ask ourselves is how can ignition systems help further boost the efficiency of the combustion engine?

EmissionsTreatment

Reduce Emissions with Nanosecond Pulsed Power Plasma Emissions Treatment for reduction of smoke, NOx, and particulates


Reduction in NOx emissions in diesel engines


Reduction in particulates in diesel engines (PM2.5 & PM10)


Reduction in smoke from charbroilers


Lower maintenance than competing technologies


Instant-on capability solves cold-start emissions problem


Eliminates odor


Emissions from cooking hamburgers on commercial charbroilers are a very significant uncontrolled source of directly-emitted particulate matter… if left uncontrolled they emit more than twice than all of the heavy-duty diesel trucks.

For comparison, the average diesel-engine truck on the road today would have to drive 10 miles on the freeway to put out the same mass of particles as a single charbroiled hamburger patty.

PlasmaProcessing

Improve Surface Treatments with Nanosecond Pulsed Power Plasma Processing Systems


Lower cost of consumables


Novel chemistry…without all the chemicals


Clean and activate surfaces to improve bonding and adhesion of coatings in atmospheric and low pressure applications


Up to 250 times more efficient compared to other methods of producing plasma


Treat heat sensitive substrates in open air environment with a stand-off plasma stream


Lower particulate/dust formation


Nanosecond pulsed power excitation holds the potential to produce a higher number of active species, higher-energetic species, and ignite a discharge quicker and more easily at a lower cost of power.
