NOx emissions reduced
Improved spark plug life-time
“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?”
