µMist® Platform Technology
A major outcome of this Carbon Connection² supported program is the demonstration of the validity of the proposed µMist® technology as the next generation fuel injector system with the environmental benefit of a significant reduction in carbon emissions and other harmful engine emissions (eg. UBHC, particulates). By using the µMist® spray technology for fuel injection in automotive engines, improved fuel burning is achieved through the generation of smaller fuel droplets and the injector operating at lower pressures. This low pressure option reduces the manufacturing and implementation cost of the new injectors and hence ensures the rapid adoption of this new technology. A retrofit approach is then possible for existing high pressure rail systems to achieve rapid market uptake.
The µMist® technology is gaining maximum scientific, commercial and public interest and is stimulating additional development programs of the µMist® platform technology into further novel industrial applications within aviation, space craft, medical, fire control and consumer industries. All these industries have a demonstrable need for technically advanced, low carbon impact and more environmentally friendly spray systems.
This Carbon Connection² supported development program has progressed rapidly through the engagement of an innovation accelerating philosophy, where state-of-the-art cutting edge partners are engaged within a consortium development team to drive forward the relevant technologies, in combination with managed, parallel, synergistic yet distinct research and development programs.
