We are actively developing advanced technology such as fuel cell electrode catalysts and carbon materials for capacitors to compliment our core lineup of exhaust catalysts.
Capacitors are capable of rapid charging and discharging, earmarking them for future use in a variety of fields. Cataler is calling on many years of accumulated know-how in the area of activated carbon manufacturing to overcome research issues such as the increased storage capacity of capacitors.
Capacitors have greater regenerative capacity than other storage cells and can rapidly charge and discharge energy. This makes them ideal for instantaneous input and output of large amounts of energy like when an engine is started, or during rapid acceleration.
Moreover, they are extremely safe storage devices with little environmental load as no precious metals are used in their construction.
The heat energy generated during braking that was conventionally wasted is transformed into rotational energy by the regeneration system and stored in the capacitor for reuse.
