CPT and Eminox announce electric supercharging partnership

British companies Controlled Power Technologies (CPT) and Eminox have agreed a deal to collaborate on the development of an electric supercharging solution aimed at reducing fuel consumption.

The companies say that by combining CPT’s Cobra electric supercharger with Eminox’s SCRT technology – which itself combines CRT (continuously regenerating trap) and SCR (selective catalytic reduction) technology to reduce emissions of vehicles already in service – they plan to demonstrate a solution that can achieve Euro 6 emissions standards and fuel economy improvements.

The memorandum of understanding between the two companies covers European retrofit applications to public transport and utility vehicles as well as heavy goods and off-highway vehicles, and enables CPT to continue working directly with vehicle OEMs for the application of the technology to new vehicles.

Andy Dickinson, the senior manager at CPT responsible for Cobra, said, “Electric supercharging provides a cost-effective technology for controlling emissions without increasing fuel consumption. Black smoke in particular, which is simply the result of too much fuel and insufficient air, can now be significantly reduced or even completely eradicated. What we have developed is a robust product scaled for heavy duty vehicles.”

“This mutually agreeable arrangement with CPT supports our strategy of partnering with leading technology developers to provide emissions reduction solutions for a wide range of vehicles,” said Dr Phil Bush, Eminox technology manager.

“Eminox SCRT technology can significantly reduce harmful diesel exhaust gases, particularly in urban operating conditions. The additional control of compressed air for transient performance provided by Cobra means that we can purge diesel particulate filters and other forms of exhaust after-treatment for NOx reduction and, most importantly, without compromising fuel economy.”
