On 8 November 2017, the European Commission presented a legislative proposal setting new CO2 emission standards for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (vans) in the European Union for the period after 2020.

The proposed targets are set for the EU-wide average emissions of new cars and vans in a given calendar year from 2025 on, with stricter targets applying from 2030.
The proposal also includes a mechanism to incentivize the uptake of zero- and low-emission vehicles, in a technology-neutral way.
The proposed framework builds on the current Regulations setting CO2 emission standards for cars and vans which will be repealed on 1 January 2020.

Average emissions of the EU fleet of new cars in 2030 will have to be 30% lower than in 2021. For the EU fleet of new vans in 2030, the reduction also amounts to 30%.
For 2025, targets for cars and vans are 15% lower than in 2021, so as to ensure that emission reductions occur as early as possible.
In order to provide for the transition from the current to the future framework, the proposal also includes the already established EU fleet wide targets for 2020/2021 of 95 g CO2/km for passenger cars and 147 g CO2/km for light commercial vehicles, both of which are based on the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) test procedure.
Starting from 2021, the emission targets will be based on the new emissions test procedure, the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), which was introduced on 1 September 2017.“

ANS, as a provider of technologies to reduce friction, e.g. for internal combustion engines, transmissions and drivelines, and can help OEM’s and the parts manufacturers to achieve these ambitious targets.

ANS is exhibiting at the 6th ATZ conference on tribology – meet us to learn more

“Friction Minimization in the Powertrain 2017”, see
https://www.atzlive.de/en/events/friction-minimization-in-the-powertrain/.
The technologies such as Triboconditioning®, TriboNite® and Tricolit® help engineers to achieve the tight requirements to minimize fuel consumption of vehicles by reducing friction losses, which provide the biggest leverage effect compared to other strategies like weight reduction or hybridization. Approaching tribology as a system, ANS technologies are also an enabler to make best use of other measures like introduction of low viscosity oils both in engines and gearboxes. We would like to welcome you on our booth at the accompanying exhibition to the conference.

ANS will present TriboNite

Applied Nano Surfaces will present TriboNite® during the annual Tribodays at Vattenfall R&D AB November 28-29 in Älvkarleby, Sweden.

ANS are pleased to announce that Johan Blomkvist together with Fredrik Lindberg, Ovako, will present an advanced thermal processing and coating technology for enhanced friction and wear behaviour applied on a new type of hybrid steel with unique in-process mechanical strengthening properties at the conference.

In a joint cooperation between ANS, Ovako and Bodycote, the TriboNite® process has been tested using a new type of hybrid steel from Ovako as substrate material. The tests have revealed unique in-process mechanical strengthening properties in combination with superior friction and wear behaviour compared to nitrided equivalents.

The Tribodays are held every autumn and bring together people from industry, institutes and academia who have interest in tribology and tribology R&D. Meet us at the Tribodays and learn more about TriboNite® and how the technology can be beneficial in your application.

Meet ANS during Elmia and Tribodays, Sweden, and get the opportunity to discuss TriboNite® and learn more about the unique properties, combining TriboNite® and a new type of hybrid steel

Want to improve performance, efficiency and profit? Find out how we can help!

ANS will exhibit at the Elmia Subcontractor fair November 14-17 together with Bodycote. To learn more about the advantages of our surface treatment technologies, please visit us in Hall B, Booth B07:48.

ANS will showcase TriboNite®, an advanced thermal processing technology that, compared to conventional nitriding, has enhanced friction, wear and corrosion performance. TriboNite® is developed in collaboration with Bodycote, global provider of heat treatment and surface technology solutions.

The Elmia Subcontractor fair is the leading trade show for the manufacturing industry´s suppliers and customers in northern Europe.
