To align with industry megatrends and boost its long-term growth, Faurecia Emissions Control Technologies has reoriented its strategy and renamed the business Faurecia Clean Mobility.
As air quality becomes a major concern for cities in particular, regulations are increasing the need for electrification and new technologies. In this context, Faurecia Clean Mobility will focus on three key areas:
- New technologies for a more efficient and responsible use of thermal and hybrid cars, integrating high-tech systems such as energy recovery and monitoring of real time data
- Developing innovations for the rapidly growing commercial vehicle market as well as the global off-highway and high horsepower market, including marine and power generation
- Leveraging its expertise to develop innovative solutions to accompany the growth of electric vehicles, with a focus on lightweight solutions including composites and battery thermal management.
Christophe Schmitt, executive vice president of Faurecia Clean Mobility, said, “By focusing on Clean Mobility we are boosting our growth opportunities. The electrification of the powertrain is a major opportunity for value-added technologies such as energy recovery, composites and battery management.
“At the same time, the world is becoming increasingly ‘emissionized,’ in particular for commercial vehicles and high horsepower engines. This represents important growth opportunities for innovative air quality solutions for which Faurecia is the world leader,” said Schmitt.
One of the objectives for Faurecia Clean Mobility is leading the transition of the mobility value chain toward cleaner solutions. Faurecia is doing so with a constantly growing innovation ecosystem including academic, governmental and industrial partners as well as start-ups. In Asia for example, Faurecia is working with Clean Air Asia, a leading air quality management network in the region. It also recently completed the purchase of Amminex to accelerate the deployment of an efficient nitrogen oxide reduction system for cars and commercial vehicles.
