Discover Plastic Omnium's latest innovations at NAIAS Detroit Auto Show 2018: PHEV and Hydrogen solutions

Plastic Omnium, the global leader in low emission fuel and exhaust treatment systems is presenting its latest innovations: PHEV and Hydrogen solutions illustrating its innovation strategy for a cleaner energy.


• Solution for hybrid motor
Plastic Omnium offers solutions for plug-in hybrids. The INWIN fuel system’s optimal architecture withstands increased gasoline vapor pressure when the vehicle is running on electricity. And TANKTRONIC®’s innovative, simplified architecture includes an E-valve with an electronic control device.

• Water injection system
First designed to improve engine performance, the water injection system significantly reduces fuel consumption, which in turn reduces CO2 emissions. A technology that can be adapted for all gasoline vehicles

• Clean diesel: the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction)
The technology involves vaporizing AdBlue®into the exhaust which, when it comes into contact with diesel exhaust gases, generates a chemical reaction that transforms polluting nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water vapor.

• Clean diesel: Dual SCR
Suited for new generations of Diesel engines, our Dual SCR system combines benefits from both AdBlue® and amoniac gaz direct injection to reduce NOx. Plastic Omnium’s technology improves SCR efficiency during engine start-up and in urban driving conditions.

• A high-pressure hydrogen storage system.
The hydrogen is stored in tanks, made of composite materials and plastics that can withstand internal stresses. The tank is made from a thermoplastic sealing liner of around 5-mm and a thick carbon-fiber layer that takes up the mechanical stresses created by internal pressure in the tank.

• Fuel cell system: A zero-emission solution
One focus of innovation is to power electric vehicle motors with a fuel cell. The cell converts oxygen and tank-stored hydrogen into electrical energy to propel the vehicle.
The system discharges nothing other than water and heat.
