Although recovery of exhaust gas energy using turbochargers was first
applied nearly 100 years ago and has been in widespread use in
the heavy-duty diesel market ever since, it is only in recent years
that turbocharging has spread to mass production vehicles in smaller engines.
The phenomenal market growth, first in passenger car diesel engines and more
recently in downsized gasoline engines, has been driven largely by the efficiency
gains, and hence CO2 benefits, that can be realized. Plus, Formula 1 will be
returning to turbocharging for the 2014 season.
