compact, lightweight, low-cost thermoelectric generation for mass markets

VECARIUS, Inc. is developing an exhaust energy harvester (i.e. a heat-to-electricity thermoelectric generator called ‘TEG’) that reduces fuel consumption and emissions of vehicles by 5 – 10 percent. The novel technology also enables cost-effective manufacture with muffler components, offering a 2-in-1 ‘muffler-TEG’. Furthermore, the TEG scales compactly in capacity from 100 to 10,000 Watts or more. Early adopters include fleet operators while broader market penetration will be achieved through vehicle OEMs, enabling them to meet strict federal fuel economy regulations over the next decade.
