Dedication to Green
While many companies talk about being “socially responsible” and their “dedication to being green,” Fallbrook Technologies makes it the driving force behind everything it does. From innovative transmission technologies for electric vehicles and scooters to making wind energy viable to improving the fuel economy of heavy-duty commercial vehicles and much more, Fallbrook’s NuVinci technology makes being green practical and affordable.
Heightened concern for the environment and the desire for reduced dependence on fossil fuels have led to an increased demand for vehicles and equipment that operate more energy efficiently, with lower emissions and at the same or improved performance. Vehicle and equipment manufacturers continue to look for technological improvements that meet the increasing environmental standards without sacrificing performance. Increased regulatory standards for efficiency and reduced emissions also drive the pursuit of such improvements.
NuVinci technology uses materials that are commonly available and widely used today in many industries. The primary materials used include steel and aluminum, both of which are available at commodity prices on mass production scale. Materials available as commodities are inexpensive and have more stable pricing than many special purpose materials that have relatively little, if any, mass production history. Unlike many “green” technologies that are dependent on rare raw materials with volatile pricing, NuVinci offer a more sustainable economic proposition.
In the global quest for a reduced carbon footprint and dramatically improved fuel efficiency, NuVinci technology can go where transmissions have not previously been used. The technology frees engineers from previous constraints, opening viable new paths to enhanced fuel efficiency and smarter energy management.
