Environmental protection Innovations
Sharper environmental awareness and more stringent regulations are forcing carmakers to rethink things. A vehicle’s fuel efficiency and carbon footprint are just as important these days as its performance data, comfort or utility value. Unrelenting for years now in the pursuit of performance-minded, eco-friendly mobility, ContiTech Fluid Technology’s design engineers have now seized the opportunity to take a much closer look at previous vehicle air conditioning systems. They have scrutinized the ContiTech range and practically reinvented it. After all, air conditioning systems account for a significant share of overall fuel consumption. To minimize this share, ContiTech have developed numerous solutions that considerably boost the efficiency of air conditioning systems.

More efficient air conditioning systems
Just using the internal heat exchanger (IHE) developed by ContiTech promises to up efficiency by around 5%.
Less refrigerant for a better climate
Regardless of what coolant the auto industry opts for in the future, every little bit of it not used is a blessing for the environment.
Series testing technique: Simulation
ContiTech has both the expertise as well as the equipment needed to simulate the thermal and pressure conditions in air conditioning systems.
Keyword: European Driving Cycle
Since January 1, 1996, the New European Driving Cycle has served as the basis for determining the fuel efficiency of motor vehicles in the European Union.
