PaREGEn: Particle Reduced, Efficient Gasoline Engines

An international European consortium of 17 large industry and research organisations on various automotive fields of expertise, the “PaREGEn” consortium will demonstrate, at up to TRL 7, a new generation of gasoline direct injection engined vehicles achieving a 15% reduction in CO2 emissions through the optimal combination of advanced engine and robust aftertreatment technologies.

Modelling and simulation software will be verified and used to improve the design and the capability of the engines. Two demonstration vehicles, one Mercedes E180 and one Jaguar XE, will comply with upcoming Euro 6 RDE limits with particle number emissions measured to a 10 nm dia. size threshold.

Project Interactions

The PaREGEn project interacts with other projects within the same H2020 call topic GV2-2016 – Technologies for low emission light duty powertrains. PaREGEn will use the latest measurement equipment as derived during the DownToTen and PEMS4Nano projects. Furthermore, interactions are foreseen with projects DiePer, SUREAL-23, EAGLE and UPGRADE. In general, the PaREGEn consortium is open to cooperate with any project that focuses on the long term development, in order to share learning and generate further beneficial synergies.
