United States : CUMMINS announces development of engine and POWERTRAIN

July 31, 2014

Cummins Inc has declared the improvement of an engine and powertrain, which cuts down carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by as much as 80% compared with a baseline gasoline-powered medium-duty truck. The work was conjointly financed from Cummins in collaboration with the California Energy Commission (CEC).

Wayne Eckerle, Cummins vice president research and technology stated, The Cummins ETHOS engine, developed through a research partnership with CEC, clearly demonstrates that by combining innovative engine design and combustion approaches with low-carbon alternative fuels, we can determine a path to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Cummins produces industry-leading emissions-controls technologies and products, and we continue to explore new ways to make our company stronger and our customers more successful, while reducing our environmental footprint. We are very appreciative of the CEC s funding participation in this important effort.

The Cummins ETHOS 2.8L has been created particularly to utilize E-85, a clean-burning blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline.
