Research & Development

For more than 20 years BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain has been strongly committed to the research and development of heat transfer systems to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and improve engine performance, which has placed us in a technological leadership position on a global scale.

This commitment has been recognized and supported by the different regional, national and european administrations, wich have co-financed the company actions throughout its history:

 

 

 GTEST

BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain, S.L. and the Galician Automotive Technology Center (CTAG) have created a mixed working group, whose mission is to research and develop new electronic products linked to thermal management for the electrification of transport, contributing to the progress of sustainable mobility, in the project "GTEST - New Automotive Thermal Management Systems for Sustainable Mobility".

This project is granted by the Galician Innovation Agency, with the support of the Regional Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry of the Xunta de Galicia, through the call for "Grants for the creation and implementation of Joint Research Units" (DOG No. 35, February 20, 2020), with filing code IN853A-2020/01, and co-financed by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - "A way of making Europe", within the ERDF Operational Programme Galicia 2014-2020, with the aim of "Promoting Technological Development, Innovation and Quality Research".

  

 efiFACTORY

BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain, S.L. and the Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia (CTAG) are expanding their collaboration, researching and developing new 4.0 manufacturing technologies that will allow the company's production processes to evolve towards a new model based on the precepts of efficiency, flexibility and sustainability, so as to be able to react to new transport requirements, through the project "4.0 Technologies for the Efficient Manufacture of Products Oriented towards Reducing Emissions in Transport".

This project is granted by the Galician Agency of Innovation, with the support of the Regional Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry of the Xunta de Galicia, and co-financed by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - "A way to make Europe", within the ERDF Operational Programme Galicia 2014-2020, with the aim of "Promoting Technological Development, Innovation and Quality Research".

  

  DETECENS

BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain, S.L. develops fouling-resistant heat transfer technologies for EGR systems within the framework of Real Driving Emissions (RDE).

The entry into effect of the Real Driving Emissions regulation for vehicle emissions control means that the range of application of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems has been extended to the entire engine map. This represents a challenge for existing exchange technologies, mainly in terms of their resistance to fouling, as they cover points with high thermal power and require operation under low temperature conditions.

In order to address this problem, the general objective of this project was to identify and analyze the new requirements of EGR systems in terms of contamination in the EGR, thus enabling the development of new technologies, testing methodologies and powerful simulation tools that provide solutions for reducing emissions in this new scenario.

This project has been co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - "A way of making Europe", within the Operational Program for Intelligent Growth 2014-2020, with the aim of "Promoting Research, Technological Development and Innovation", with the support of the Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI).

  

 LIGENEF

BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain, S.L. improves the energy efficiency of its production and storage area by implementing an Intelligent LED Lighting System, with the aim of "Achieving a Cleaner and Sustainable Economy".

This project has been granted by the Energy Institute of Galicia (INEGA) under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - "A way of making Europe" - and has been supported by the Xunta de Galicia.

  

 UMI

BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain, S.L. and the Galician Automotive Technology Center (CTAG) expand their collaboration by consolidating the Joint Research Unit (UMI) initiated in 2014, developing "New Automotive Products and Technologies for Emission Reduction".

This consolidation of the BorgWarner-CTAG Joint Research Unit has been granted by the Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN) under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - "A Way of Making Europe", and has been supported by the Regional Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry.

  

 COMICON

BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain, S.L., Dinak, S.A. and Mecanizados Castro Galicia, S.L. develop highly corrosion-resistant solutions for exhaust gas evacuation systems generated by the combustion of new fuels (including biomass).

This project has been granted by the Galician Agency for Innovation (GAIN) under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - "A way of making Europe", and has been supported by the Regional Ministry of Economy, Employment and Industry.

 

 

BorgWarner Emissions Systems Spain, S.L. and Sentes-bir Metalurji Kiimya Enerjii Uretim develop a nickel-based filler metal sheet with a high chrome content for improving the corrosion and oxidation resistance of EGR systems.

This project, recognized with the EUREKA label, has been supported by the administrations and public agencies in Spain and Turkey (CDTI and TÜBITAK), as well as by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund - ERDF - "A way of making Europe").
