We regularly try to identify South African businesses who have rich and attractive Intellectual Property and are doing interesting things worth watching. Today we look at Ducere Holdings.
This was a company which was brought to our attention by the team at The Innovation Hub and is a company specialising in the efficient use of energy through the development of energy recovery and deployment technologies.
Their current project is the MISER™ hydraulic hybrid transmission system for the automotive sector which has initially been designed for trucks, but is equally applicable to the full range of vehicles. These include large transport applications such as trains.
MISER is a hydraulic hybrid transmission that recovers lost kinetic energy and optimizes the engine for all types and sizes of vehicles. This results in dramatically lower fuel usage, significantly reduced emissions and a lower cost of ownership.
