Car carriers on the car shipping streets and highways of the United States could be utilizing a Cummins engine with a VanDyne SuperTurbocharger in the future. Cummins and VanDyne SuperTurbo have recently announced they would begin working together on the development and eventual implementation of more Class 8 trucks using VanDyne SuperTurbochargers as part of America's Super Truck program. A program that sees the costs of developing the super trucks of the future shared between the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and the private sector of the United States of America, the Super Truck program is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act designed to ensure innovation and technology development in America.
Sources indicate that this agreement between Cummins and VanDyne SuperTurbo is fantastic news for the auto transport industry of America and if this partnership is successful in developing more Cummins engines utilizing a VanDyne SuperTurbocharger, sources also indicate that this idea could help to decrease the carbon wheel-print of the transport industry of the United States, in the years ahead in the century of the environment. Apparently this technology will capture the waste heat created in the exhaust and add it to the power available for the Cummins engine in question, which can increase the fuel efficiency and horsepower in the engine, and subsequently reduce the total amount of CO2 these Cummins engines will produce.
When can we expect to hear some news from this partnership about new Cummins engines with VanDyne SuperTurbochargers going into full production? The work of this partnership is just getting started according to sources, so we should probably be patient, and hope that in the future this idea helps manufacturers of internal combustion engines meet future CO2 reduction targets for their engines.
