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

Adaptive Diesel Engine Control Via Variable Valve Timing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: George Schwartz, Vice President – (734) 995-2455
Award Amount: $79,776.00
Abstract:
Diesel engines are widely used in military and commercial 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 below 15:1, whereas the necessary compression ratio for cold starting ranges… More
