The technology represents a microwave-based Combustion Ignition Method that can be used in all combustion-powered engines operated with liquid or gaseous fuels. Diesel, kerosene, alcohol, gasoline fuels, as well as regenerative fuels such as E-fuel and Blue Diesel are candidates.
The MWI combustion ignition method technology can be relied upon to meet the latest interior engine specifications for fuel efficiency and pollutant reduction.
One great advantage of the MWI technology is that legacy engine designs do not need to be modified, and that the ignition system merely needs to be replaced.
The advantages of MWI technology at a glance:
– Drastic reduction of fuel consumption
(up to 30% theoretically achievable) while maintaining the same engine output. Currently conducted initial test series have demonstrated a reduction of 13 – 20% in various operating configurations, in which case the optimization potential has not yet been fully tapped.
– Significant reduction of pollutant emissions
Significant double-digit percentage reduction in harmful emissions through safe engine operation in optimized map areas (e.g., NOX, CO, CO2, HC and PM). While there are currently (2018) no verified measurement results concerning pollutants, a CO2 reduction of 15% can be assumed at a fuel reduction of for example 15%. A CO reduction can be assumed for the same reason since the fuel reduction involves leaning out and a higher oxygen concentration is present during combustion. At between 60 K and 120 K, the combustion temperatures are comparatively cooler than for spark ignition. The reduced combustion temperature furthermore suggests a reduction of thermal NOx.
