Joint research project "Prometheus" further develops surface technology for lower CO2 emissions

Economical engines due to less friction

Press release (No. 3) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

Together with the automotive industry, researchers at the Fraunhofer IWS have been working to develop processes for friction-reducing surfaces of engine components over the past few years. Now, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced even further by enhancing surface technology. The Dresden Institute is researching in this direction with various partners in the joint project "Prometheus".
