|Title||Efficient Additivated Gasoline Lean Engine|
The EAGLE project (Efficient Additivated Gasoline Lean Engine) aims at improving the energy efficiency of European road transport vehicles by developing a highly efficient gasoline engine adapted for future electrified powertrains.
By combining new advanced technologies, the EAGLE project will support the European automobile industry to reach the forthcoming CO2 emissions target of 50 g CO2/km while complying with standards in terms of particulates and NOx emissions.
The engine efficiency will be significantly increased by the use of advanced insulating coating materials and ultra-lean mixtures. However, since the flame propagation is unstable in lean mixtures, the combustion process will be supported by a high cylinder charge motion, an advanced in-volume ignition system, and the use of hydrogen.
