Welcome to the DiePeR project

The DiePeR consortium comprises professionals from key players in the light duty powertrain and vehicle manufacturing sectors. This excellent group of companies (among which 2 OEMs, a major engine manufacturer, and five major high end and large component and engineering services suppliers) and knowledge centres develops the knowhow, intellectual property rights and technical capabilities to adequately and cost-effectively produce cleaner, highly efficient Diesel powertrains and aftertreatment technologies for future class D and E passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (LCVs) up to 3,500 kg that  “go beyond Euro 6 limits under Real Driving conditions” (EU6 RDE).


Concept of DiePeR

The DiePeR concept concerns a new generation of non-hybrid engines and short term developments. The project will address the optimal combination of innovative engine and robust after-treatment technologies as well as modelling and testing to improve the design and control capability. Special attention shall be given to the assessment and reduction of particle emissions below 23 nm, particularly for direct injection gasoline and diesel engines.

Project Interactions

DiePeR will work closely with REWARD: 'REal World Advanced Technologies foR Diesel Engines’. This project started on 1 May 2015 (EC funding 10 MEuro). It´s main scope is on cost-effective, clean and highly efficient Diesel powertrains and aftertreatment technologies for future class B, C, D and E passenger cars. New technologies for friction/ wear reduction, exhaust aftertreatment and fuel-efficient 2-stroke and 4-stroke Diesel engine concepts are advanced to TRL 6 or TRL 7 and integrated in two demonstration vehicles.
