Project description

This project will investigate how an additional piston can be used for controlling an HCCI combustion engine. The development of the engine concept and the precise estimate of the potential to increase efficiency and reduce emissions will be used as additional input for patent applications and / or other forms of protection. A valorization strategy will also be made.
