Boost Recuperation Machine recognized as EU eco-innovation
- Boost Recuperation Machine from SEG Automotive the only 48V machine with additional EU eco-credits
- Part of the overall strategy to reduce emissions from road transport
- Potential CO2 penalty savings cover majority of system costs for car manufacturers
The EU has the strictest CO2 legislation in the world for car manufacturers: from 2021, fleet consumption (according to NEDC) may only amount to 95g CO2/km, and in 2025, the threshold will further decrease to 81g CO2/km. For every gram over that threshold, a fine of 95€ per vehicle will be imposed – a huge challenge for the automotive industry. In addition to the gradual switch to electric vehicles, it is also important to limit CO2 emissions from combustion engines. A feasible solution is the Boost Recuperation Machine (BRM) from SEG Automotive. It converts conventional combustion engines into 48V mild hybrids and thus saves up to 15% on both fuel and CO2 emissions. The EU has now officially recognized the BRM as an eco-innovation, which enables manufacturers to receive an additional CO2 credit of just under 2g CO2/km per vehicle.
