Just days after his going away party at the Renaissance Center, Transonic Combustion Inc, has added Lutz to its board of directors.
While Lutz helped shepherd the Chevrolet Volt from concept to production in his final years at GM, he is well aware of the fact that internal combustion engines will remain the dominant powertrain technology for years to come. With that in mind, any technologies that can provide a cost effective way to make engines more efficient and cleaner running have an opportunity to succeed in the market place.
Transonic is developing a fuel injection and control system that can operate seamlessly with a wide variety of fuels. The system can also operate at extremely lean air/fuel ratios without producing excessive amounts of NOx emissions. Stay tuned for more on Transonic Combustion.
