By combining a number of existing technologies, especially for temperature control of the different paerts, Bosch might have solved the Diesel emissions problem. And all of this in the middle of the biggest automobile industry scandal ever, involving the Diesel.
Is there still a future for the diesel engine? According to Bosch, the answer is yes—this week the German company announced it had made a breakthrough by combining a number of existing technologies, which means that modern turbodiesel engines can still make good power and deliver excellent fuel efficiencies. At the same time, Bosch says this combo will emit very low levels of dangerous nitrogen oxides (NOx)—in fact, the company says it can beat future European emissions regulations by 90 percent.
