ICE Emissions Reduction by 80 to 90%
How It Works
The shortfalls of the catalytic converter system have been known since its introduction. The catalytic converter only reduces a vehicle’s pollution when the exhaust is hot enough to complete the functioning of the converter. A fully functioning catalytic converter provides oxidation and reduction of a vehicle’s exhaust including nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. These exhaust elements become less hazardous substances such as carbon dioxide, water vapor and nitrogen gas. The need to heat the preliminary exhaust applies to internal combustion engines and diesel engines.
The applied for patent by Vaness LLC corrects this shortfall. This product will warm the cold initial startup exhaust coming out of the manifold exhaust and heat before it reaches the catalytic converter. Thereby reducing the toxic emissions coming from the start of an ICE powered vehicle.
Further testing and refinement of this product could literally produce a zero emission ICE powered vehicle. This could allow ICE powered vehicle to be less pollutive than electric vehicles as the electricity is produced many times with coal fired powered plants.
This product uses a system of patented layered ceramic heating elements producing the following results and benefits:
- Heats quickly (800° degrees F
in 7 seconds).
- Draws low power
- Low production cost
- Retail price is $500 to $1,000.
- Could be mandated by the
These units are currently in production at facilities in Maryville, Tennessee, China and Cleveland, Ohio. The engineering team, including electrical and mechanical engineers is based in Cleveland, Ohio.
Vehicle Cabin Heating
Warming in Seconds
7 seconds or less
Begin to warm the interior of your vehicle in less than 7 seconds, regardless of the temperature outside. This feature can begin with the initial power to the vehicle such as unlocking or opening the door. The need to have warm heat coming out on a cold day can be understood by anyone who has started a vehicle on a cold day.
