 2003 BANKSIA LEADERSHIP IN SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT DESIGN AWARD

The Orbital Combustion Process 2-Stroke Motorcycle Technology- Orbital Engine Corporation, WA

Orbital Engine Corporation’s innovative direct fuel injection technology allows two stoke motorcycles to meet the world’s most stringent exhaust emissions regulations with more than an 80% reduction in noxious emissions and up to 40% reduction in fuel consumption. Europe’s largest scooter producers, Aprilia, Piaggio and Peugeot, have adopted the technology. Between them they will have on the market this European summer eight different motor scooter models in volume production using the innovative Australian technology. Market success as an emissions solution has also been achieved in the marine outboard and personal watercraft sector. The technology relies on a patented direct injection system that is manufactured in high volumes by Synerject in the USA, a joint venture between Orbital and SiemensVDO Automotive. Orbital?s activity in India and other parts of Asia bodes well for a large uptake of the technology in these markets where pollution from two stroke motorcycles is a major problem.
