Common Rail injection boosts the environmental performance of diesel engines

The Common Rail injection technology has contributed significantly to the new era of the modern diesel engine. The diesel engine became more powerful, runs quietly and produces far less emissions than in the past. The Common Rail injection system is an engine-internal measure to reduce the environmental impact in contrast to exhaust after-treatment systems, which are added components on the engine.

With our Common Rail systems, the following environmental improvements can be realized compared to conventional injection (the figures below are valid without additional environmental protection measures):

  • Diesel fuel savings: 5 to 15%
  • CO2 savings: 5 to 15%
  • Reduction of black smoke: 70 to 90% (not visible anymore, even in transient mode)
  • Reduction of NOx emissions: 20 to 50%
  • Reduction of CO emissions: 80 to 90%

These advantages with Common Rail injection have led to a widespread modernization of diesel engines in the passenger car and truck domains. The same shift to Common Rail systems is happening now in the off-road diesel engine markets. And in the coming years, diesel engines in the off-road market will continue to be a vital instrument for transportation of goods and people, for construction works and for power generation at remote sites or in emergencies.

We are proud to make a contribution to a better environmental performance of diesel engines now and in the future.
