The automotive industry is facing stricter regulations to clean up global pollution levels by reducing vehicle emissions. Facing increasing pressure to minimize footprint while also maintaining vehicle safety and performance, manufacturers will need to look for innovative solutions that optimize vehicle efficiency, safety and sustainability. 

In this webinar, Janie Wierzbicki, R&D engineer for fiber development at Porex, will discuss the vulnerabilities of a crankcase ventilation system and the integral role filtration media plays within a functioning, successful design for greater emission performance. Built to relieve pressure in the crankcase caused by unwanted blow-by gases, a CCV system with the right filtration capabilities can also siphon usable oil back into an engine’s oil sump and help reduce the amount of harmful gases emitted from the vehicle’s exhaust. The result? A combustion process that is not only more efficient and enhances engine longevity, but also does its part in protecting against harmful pollution.

While all CCV systems mean well, they are limited by their material components. From a shedding-prone composition and costly production process to an improper pore structure that undermines filtration efficiency, traditional materials can ultimately pose threats to a vehicle’s rating. Join the discussion with Porex to discover how new porous material innovations with greater filtration stability can maintain crankcase and engine health and help eliminate dangerous emissions.

What registrants will learn in this webinar:

  • Understand the challenges and risks associated with poor material performance in CCV systems that are contributing to air pollution
  • Discover how a functional CCV system can relieve pressure in a crankcase, preventing airborne dust, particles, hydrocarbons and problematic gases from being released into the atmosphere while recycling oil within the combustion process
  • Learn how proper CCV system filtration can help maintain oil levels that protect engine components, maintain high engine performance and promote engine life
