With comparable vehicle, type of fuel and driving conditions, the sustainable thermal AEQUEO eco-engine consumes, for any service requested (journey to be covered), 30-35% less fuel than the conventional engine. Its operating cost, as well as the polluting and CO2 emissions it generates during this, are therefore also 30-35% lower.
Measures implemented to obtain the efficiency gains:
> Optimal combustion conditions
> Dual chamber geometry
> Continuously variable compression
> Free sliding of the pistons.
With a comparable service capacity (power, torque, comfort and operating safety), the resources necessary for the manufacture and recycling of the sustainable thermal AEQUEO eco-engine (minerals, drinking water, production and recycling energy) are 30-35% lower to those required by the conventional engine. The weight and size of the engine, its manufacturing cost and the pollutant and CO2 emissions it generates during the latter are also 30-35% lower.
Principles applied to obtain the effectivity gains:
> Compact and lightweight frame
> Reduction of the number of parts
> Low mechanical stresses
> Balance of forces and moving masses
The operational safety, installation and maintenance conditions, as well as the lifespan of the sustainable thermal AEQUEO eco-engine are comparable to those of a conventional heat engine.
Measures implemented to obtain high reliability:
> Sealing of combustion chambers
> Lubrication of moving parts
> Cooling of the enclosure and the piston heads
> Modular construction
With comparable reliability, the weight, size and resource requirements of the sustainable thermal AEQUEO eco-engine are 30-35% lower than those of the conventional heat engine. The same is true of its manufacturing costs and its operating costs. The environmental loads it generates during its life cycle are 50-60% lower.
