Solar and wind energy took the interest of engineer Michael Reimann in the 1980s. The German government nor the citizens demanded the push to adopt those technologies. Neither fuel-guzzling, air-polluting vehicles were in the eye of interest. Michael’s breakthrough patent of 1991 was indeed an ignition technology and method for internal combustion engines. It helped increase the engine performance other factors and emissions, in particular, were not the focus.
Mr. Reimann founded Ecomotive as an independent engineering studio with Dr. Jürgen Mutschler and M David Keilflug in 2000. The goal to reduce emissions and increase fuel economy was in the far future. Ignitions underwent only minor changes. Furthermore, they are not even worth mentioning. Complete combustion would lead to fuel economy and reduction in air pollution, is the schoolbook theory. Challenge accepted.
Persisting in research and development proved there is a way to design efficient ignitions. The solution of 1991 gave more performance. The breakthrough technology, Ecomotive’s Plasma Ignition of 2007, reduced emissions and improved fuel economy in long-term tests. Design and material proved to be insufficient. Despite that, Plasma Ignition laid the founding stone for Blue Ignition™, the technology that reduces exhaust emissions and cuts fuel consumption.
By February 2016, Ecomotive™ began to explore the U.S. market for the commercialization of their ignitions. Blue Ignition™ passed emission and fuel economy testing with surprising results. The company locates in Los Angeles.
We believe there is more room for reducing exhaust emissions and contributing to fuel economy. Ecomotive seeks to enable industry and consumers alike to benefit from Blue Ignition. Further development of the technology in 2022 towards single ignition coils makes the technology adaptable for OEMs and aftermarkets. The retrofit model with cumbersome wiring becomes obsolete. We want to give everybody the chance to reduce exhaust emissions and natural reserves.
