FGC Plasma CEO speaks at summit on Entrepreneurship in Mexico City

CEO of FGC Plasma Systems, Felipe Gomez del Campo, spoke at the US Embassy in Mexico City as part of a series of innovation summits called On the Road to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, which will culminate Nov. 28 in India at the full summit. Gomez del Campo, a member of Chain Reaction Innovations first cohort, was one of four entrepreneurs invited to speak a the Embassy about their technologies and future attendance at the global summit. All of the events are sponsored by the U.S. State Department as part of its efforts to drive innovation.

Gomez del Campo, a US citizen who immigrated from Mexico as a young child, is developing  a better fuel injector that incorporates plasma to better control combustion in jet engines and gas turbines.

This technology enables more optimum operation of the engine. In particular, by reducing fuel consumption during idling, savings are possible of between 1 percent to 5 percent per flight. This technology will also enable benefits from lower emissions; increased fuel flexibility; and improved reliability.
