Sturman Optimized ALL Fuel ‘ACE’ Engine Featured Aspen Clean Energy Roundtable

Posted on 11/30/2013 by Administrator Account

It was natural that Sturman Industries would play a role at the 2013 Aspen Clean Energy Roundtable. Why? Because Sturman’s long-time motto has been: “Leading the Mechanical World into the Digital Age” and the Montreux Aspen Energy Roundtable’s theme this year was “Global Transformations in Energy: The Fuel of the Future is Digital.”

It was natural that Sturman Industries would play a role at the 2013 Aspen Clean Energy Roundtable.  Why?  Because Sturman’s long-time motto has been:  “Leading the Mechanical World into the Digital Age” and the Montreux Aspen Energy Roundtable’s theme this year was “Global Transformations in Energy:  The Fuel of the Future is Digital.”

Sturman Industries President and Chairman, Carol Sturman, was seated at the “Investing in Clean Infrastructure” session of the Roundtable.  Discussion was focused on building a national fueling and charging network for Natural Gas vehicles using LNG and CNG for fleet vehicles.  Other Roundtable participants with Carol were Umesh Padval of Bessemer Venture Partners, Kyle Zeringue of Louisiana Economic Development and Hermann Pengg of Audi AG. 

Carol explained that today’s alternative fuels cannot compete using the current industry approach in which standard controls are used with conventional engines.  Conventional engine controllers cannot optimize the use of alternative fuels, such as natural gas, ethanol, biodiesel and others.   Sturman is leading a superior ‘digital’ solution to this issue.   Conventional engines waste over half of the fuel they consume.  In comparison, flexible ultra-fast micro Sturman Digital Valves combined with new software strategies, allow for superior and enabling combustion management.  Sturman’s Air Controlled Engine management system is designed to provide optimal use of ALL fuels.  ACE optimizes the percentage of work achieved from a given amount of fuel, prevents emission formation, and helps eliminate the need for extensive after-treatment by precisely and intelligently managing the combustion process in ways not before possible.

Sturman shared photos of their ACE demonstration engine that has been running on a variety of fuels, including natural gas, biodiesel and diesel.
