H2020 Inducement Prize Engine retrofit for clean air – € 1.5 Million


banner_twitter_engineretrofit

Objectives

The Horizon Prize for the Engine retrofit for clean air aims at spurring the development of new technologies that can be applied to existing diesel engines and powertrains to reduce pollutant emissions in real driving conditions to a level comparable with that of new cars responding to the emissions legislation in force from 2017.

Expected results

European citizens in many urban areas suffer from serious health impacts due to air quality issues (around 500.000 premature deaths per year due to particles, NOX and ozone). There are more than 250 million passenger cars on the road in European Union. 41% of these have diesel engines (up to 70% of the fleet in some countries), while only about 5% of the vehicles are using alternative powertrains and fuels. The Horizon Prize for the Clean Engine Retrofit aims at reducing the pollution produced by the existing fleet by retrofittable technology (i.e. additional devices and/or modification of existing diesel engines). The implementation of the technology should allow such retrofitted vehicles (a large part of which, being Euro 5 or early Euro 6 are relatively recent and therefore will be on the road for many years) to circulate without unduly affecting air quality. More specifically, since such retrofitted vehicles could have less than half of the emissions of the unmodified vehicle in the case of NOX, city authorities may consider measures to encourage their use to improve urban air quality. It is expected that a successful application of Clean Engine Retrofits will therefore improve health and life quality of European citizens. The Horizon Prize for the Cleanest Engine Retrofit will be awarded to the applicant or team demonstrating the lowest emission of NOX (a generic term for the various nitrogen oxides), PN/PM (particulate matter in terms of number of particles and mass, respectively) and other pollutants under real urban driving conditions on the road as well as under standardized conditions in the laboratory.

 Eligibility
The contest will be open to any legal entity (including natural persons) or groups of legal entities. Target audience are individuals, SMEs, research centres, universities suppliers of components and car manufacturers.

Exclusion criteria foreseen in the provisions of articles 106(1), 107, 108 and 109 of the Financial Regulation (regulation 966/2012) will apply.

Participants already awarded an EU or Euratom prize cannot receive a second prize for the same activities.

Deadline for registration: 12 June 2017 at 17:00:00 CET

Register by sending email to EC-ENGINE-RETROFITPRIZE@EC.EUROPA.EU

Deadline for submitting the proposal: 12 September 2017
