DuPont and Bosch Develop Oxygen Sensors that Reduce Emissions

See how DuPont and Bosch are partnering to reduce emissions in autos.

 

Automotive Oxygen Sensors Protected by Teflon® Fluoropolymers Reduce Emissions and Improve Fuel Efficiency

By 2035, more than three billion vehicles will place unprecedented pressures on limited fossil fuel resources. Today’s automotive design professionals must cost-effectively increase fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions, while also improving performance, safety, and comfort. With more than 100 high-performance materials and products among integrated global vehicle-system application development teams, DuPont is committed to helping the automotive industry succeed.

In this video, you’ll hear about one example of our innovative automotive technologies, the automotive oxygen sensors developed by DuPont and Bosch.

With the protection of DuPont™ Teflon® fluoropolymers, these automotive oxygen sensors are able to collect information at the hottest spot in the engine to reduce both fuel consumption and emissions. In addition to reducing fuel usage by up to 15%, the oxygen sensors can reduce emissions of hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxide by up to 99%.

As one of the first companies to publicly establish environmental goals 20 years ago, DuPont understands that the drive to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and reduce CO2 emissions is paramount. Offering a broad range of materials derived from renewable sources, DuPont continues its commitment to developing lower-global-warming-potential automotive technologies.
