Taxis set to recycle fumes

London Taxicabs are expected to meet all the current legislation on exhaust emissions and are also set to recycle the fumes they create.

The cleaner taxis that will be roving the streets of the capital will be achieved by utilising an exhaust gas recycling system developed by German company Novotechnik of Stuttgart.

Fuel demand is monitored by the system as well as fresh air and the exhaust gas is recycled back in the inlet manifold, with many vehicles already fitted with this technology.

The advantage of this is that the fuel mixture burns at a lower temperature and more completely, so that the exhaust gases that are then emitted contain fewer solids and other impurities.

This process also extends the taxis usable life without any additional costs for special additives or fuels.
