Nikkei. Autoparts manufacturer Denso Corp. will invest about ¥9 billion (US$77 million) to increase global production of diesel common rail fuel injection systems by 30% in 2010.
With environmental regulations being tightened worldwide, demand is expected to grow for diesel-powered vehicles, which emit less carbon dioxide than gasoline-powered cars.
Denso’s common rail system uses up to five multiple injections and an injection pressure of 1,800 bar. The company plans to increase the global market share of its fuel injection systems from 15% to 20%.
