Award List:

DoD Engine Efficiency Enhancement Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: George Schwartz, VICE PRESIDENT
Award Amount: $69,384.00
Abstract:
Diesel engines are widely used in commercial and military vehicles, as well as some light duty vehicles. The compression ratio is a compromise between power, economy, and cold startability. The optimum ratio for economy is near 14:1 to 15:1, whereas the necessary compression ratio for cold starting… More

Diesel Engine Efficiency and Emissions Improvement Via Variable Compression and Expansion Ratios

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: George Schwartz, Dr. – 734-995-2455
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Diesel compression ratios are normally set high (16:1 to 23:1) for cold starting, yet data show optimum fuel efficiency and emissions occur at compression ratios below 14:1. The industry trend has been to steadily reduce compression ratio. Literature findings indicate that reducing Diesel… More

Diesel Engine Efficiency and Emissions Improvement Via Piston Temperature Control

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: George Schwartz – 734-995-2455
Award Amount: $79,996.00
Abstract:
Diesel engine manufacturers need a way to improve fuel economy as well as limit NOx and particulate emissions to meet upcoming federal, state, and global regulations. A large percentage of emissions and fuel consumption occurs during cold start and light to medium load operation. EMA proposes to… More
