automotive industry is currently experiencing a major breakthrough: new
guidelines regarding emissions require ever-cleaner and efficient engines.
BorgWarner provides the Hyundai Motor Group with exhaust gas recirculation
(EGR) valves that reduce nitrogen oxide (NOX) and carbon monoxide (CO).
addition, the company’s technology contributes to improved fuel efficiency of
up to 2.5 % and features cost-effective design. BorgWarner is producing this
clean and efficient technology solution locally in Korea for the first time.
The technology is currently suitable for three of the automaker’s engines,
including the Gamma II (1.6 litre), Nu Imp. (1.8 and 2.0 litre) and Theta III
(2.5 litre). Moreover, BorgWarner supports the Hyundai Motor Group by locally
producing EGR valves in China as well.
are delighted to expand our successful, more than 30 year long-lasting
relationship with Hyundai Motor Group. As leader in gasoline EGR technology, we
can provide our customers with highly developed solutions such as an adaptable
valve housing to be suitable for each engine layout,” said Joe Fadool,
President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions & Thermal Systems. “At
BorgWarner, we are aligned with the aims of the Hyundai Motor Group, employing
EGR for gasoline engines to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions. As we
support our customers with localised manufacturing, we have grown as a top
supplier for EGR solutions,” he added.
systems are a proven, cost-effective solution for improved fuel economy. To
meet more and more stringent emissions regulations, the demand for this
advanced technology is increasing among vehicle manufacturers. BorgWarner
provides its customers with a range of technologies, from EGR valves to
complete EGR module solutions. By recirculating a controllable portion of
exhaust gas back into the intake air, EGR systems enable the reduction of
combustion temperatures and increase engine efficiency, even at minimal coolant
flow. The company’s valves precisely regulate EGR at various engine speeds and
loads. BorgWarner’s solution enables reductions in fuel consumption by
minimizing the use of enriched fuel/air mixtures while facilitating a leaner
burn through improved combustion timing.
