LOVELAND — SuperTurbo Technologies Inc. and Linamar Corporation have entered into an exclusive agreement to bring the SuperTurbo to market.

The SuperTurbo is a mechanically driven turbocharger that provides “on-demand” boost to internal combustion engines, which provides the ability to control and balance boost pressure and air-fuel ratio.

It supports 7.5L to 16L internal combustion engines for both on-highway and construction applications, where emission and CO2 regulations require advanced air management systems.

The company says its latest creation was designed to improve the efficiency of diesel, hydrogen, and natural gas internal combustion engines while reducing emissions.

McLaren Engineering, a division of Linamar, will produce prototype units for durability testing. The agreement mandates that upon completion of testing, Linamar will manufacture and test SuperTurbos for the global market.

According to the company, global engine OEMs have demonstrated an interest in the SuperTurbo as a  component of their future engine architectures that meet compliance with China 7, Euro 7 and California Air Resource Board/EPA 2024/2027 emissions requirements.

“SuperTurbo’s partnership with Linamar brings our company one step closer to commercializing a technology that can significantly reduce emissions, increase engine performance, and lower fuel costs relative to competing engine boosting technologies,” said Mark Herbst, CEO at SuperTurbo in a statement.

In addition to the Linamar partnership, SuperTurbo completed their collaboration with AVL List GmbH  to investigate the carbon and emissions reduction possibilities of the hydrogen internal combustion engine (H2ICE).
