The Seeker is looking for Emission Reduction Technologies technologies that are able to be embedded within the vehicle structures -chassis and body components-, either to their surface or within its structural profiles, to capture the remaining emissions of the drive-train system in order to meet or exceed environmental regulations.
The regulations regarding vehicle emissions have caused the manufacturing industry to develop cleaner and more efficient technologies. Some of the biggest modifications in the mobility industry in order to achieve these regulations are related to the drive-train system and the development of lighter structures. Although the global industry is moving from internal combustion engines (ICE’s) to electric vehicles (EV’s), the industry is expecting that some mix of both ICE’s and EV’s will still be manufactured for at least the next 10-20 years. Additionally, from an integral sustainable standpoint, switching to electrified mobility doesn´t nullify emissions reductions due to the use of fossil fuels to generate the energy used on vehicles.
The value chain of the mobility industry is looking for ways to develop and incorporate new technologies that complement the engine emission reduction efforts and help the overall industry achieve a more environmentally friendly vehicle fleet.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge; the Solver will only need to submit a written proposal to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
To comply with emission regulation for ICE-vehicles, the industry is looking for emission reduction technologies that could be embedded into the vehicle. Although the large proportion of the emission mitigation is done by the engine and the exhaust system, there are plenty of technologies that can capture emissions and even convert them into fuels. For example, there are industrial applications that are on stationary facilities and that through mechanical and/or chemical reactions can capture harmful emissions and dispose them in a more eco-friendly manner or even convert them into sustainable fuels.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge. The Solver will write a preliminary proposal (about 2-4 pages, including supporting non-confidential information and contact details) to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership. Upon completion of the evaluation, the Seeker may contact selected Solvers directly to work out terms for a collaboration contract. The monetary value of the contract will vary depending on the amount of work to be delivered and the agreed upon time frame.[NOTE: Proposals from Solvers who have the ability to work directly as the collaboration partner or supplier will be considered first. The Seeker will also consider proposals from other Solvers who refer a suitable candidate as a partner for a “finder’s fee” of $2,000 USD if convinced the candidate is worth contacting a second time. See full description for details.]
