Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9914477A1] The invention relates to a system for recirculating exhaust gas in an internal combustion engine. A connecting line (4; 10, 13; 26) for the recirculated exhaust gas is connected to an intake pipe (2; 15; 22), cooling elements being arranged in between. The cooling element may be e.g., a cooling channel (5; 18; 19; 25) for liquid coolant, integrated into the flange-type connection joining the connecting line (4; 10, 13; 26) to the intake pipe (2; 15; 22), or may be another heat conductive element.
