    Japan
    Relation to CTCN:
    Network Member
    Knowledge Partner

    The Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) is an entity that supports the UNEP’s International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC), based in Japan. GEC is dedicated to the transfer of environmentally sound technologies, in both developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The foundation aims to contribute to Japan’s international efforts on the environment, sharing project collaborations as well as promoting Japan’s rich conservation knowledge and experience in developing nations.

  • Energy-efficient motors

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Electric motors are widely used in various sectors where mechanical energy is needed. It is an electromechanical device which converts electrical energy into rotary mechanical energy. This output is then further converted to provide the needed final use-­‐energy. The two main components of motor are the stator (stationary element) and the rotor (rotating element).

  • Reducing Emissions and Controlling Combustion Phasing in HCCI Engines

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Direct-injection compression-ignition engines also known as HCCI (homogeneous charge compression-ignition) engines offer an alternative to conventional spark-ignited and diesel combustion systems. HCCI engines produce low particulate (soot) and nitrogen oxide emissions and exhibit high thermal efficiency. However in HCCI engines there is no direct control of ignition such as a spark. Instead HCCI engines rely on auto-ignition making combustion phasing (timing of auto-ignition) difficult to control.

  • Device for fuel-saving through electrical energy management controls load(s) so electrical load and/or generator power increased in high engine efficiency states; in low efficiency states load(s) is controlled to reduce load/generator power

    Type: 
    Product

    The device has a controller (6) with an algorithm for electrical energy management a sensing arrangement (9) for detecting different driving states at least one controllable load (5) and a generator (1) with a generator output voltage regulator(2). At least one load is controlled so that the electrical load power increases and/or the generator power increases in driving states with high internal combustion engine efficiency. In low efficiency states at least one load is controlled so the load and/or generator power reduces.
