23rd May 2012

SKF announced that the SKF Rotor Positioning Bearing has qualified into the SKF BeyondZero Portfolio because it is an integral component of Stop-Start systems for
micro-hybrid vehicles. In dense urban traffic, Stop-Start can reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions up to 15%. Based on an annual mileage of 14,500km, this solution saves 75kg CO2 per vehicle per year.

“The automotive industry is continually looking for solutions to reduce CO2 output and improve vehicle fuel efficiency,” says Franco Ferro, Director SKF Automotive, Powertrain & Electrical and Two Wheelers. “In partnership with Valeo, SKF developed the SKF Rotor Positioning Bearing, which helps make Stop-Start possible.”
