The SP3H solution uses the NIR technology, which is already used in few sectors but with heavy engines. The company developed a NIR-based sensor small, robust, and accurate enough to be installed on-board any vehicles.
From its near-infrared spectrum, the miniaturized optical sensor enables mapping of information within seconds, obtained on the thousands of molecules that make up the fuel, in a robust and universal manner; thus acting as a veritable fuel DNA fingerprint. This approach is valid for all types of fuels and biofuels, whatever the country and fuel supply, and thus enables the information to be rendered relevant and usable under all circumstances.
Who we are
What we do
SP3H developed a fuel quality sensor that can provide fuel molecular structure data to the engine control unit in order to achieve engine settings adaptation, delivering a 5% reduction in CO2 emissions and up to 20% reduction in other pollutant emissions (NOx and fine particles). This breakthrough technology offers a part of the solution to energy efficiency and eco-mobility – allowing engines to attain better combustion efficiencies from the fuel that they use by adjusting settings according to fuel quality data derived by our sensor. While a transition to zero emission power and transport propulsion technologies is an ultimate objective, the SP3H sensor technology is ready to use now and for the foreseeable future to help reduce our carbon footprint.
What they say
Some technologies will show benefits on the new WLTP laboratory test; others only in real world driving. Extending the scope of the 2025 regulation to encourage a wider range of “Eco-innovations” and stimulate more efficient auxiliary equipment will be important to deliver real-world improvements in emissions. Anticipation of a 2025 regulation is already driving an accelerating supply of new solutions.
SP3H, the French technology company that has developed a fuel sensor that precisely measures the composition of fuel enabling the engine to operate more efficiently, is applying an “Eco-Innovation”, a technology that improves efficiency on the road, where it matters, not just in tests.
