After last weeks story on the Raphial Morgado and MYT™ Engine I Thought I would do a series on other innovative engine technologies. The Cyclone engine may only have average fuel efficiency, but does have many advantages over conventional engine technology. These include reducing emissions, and the ability to run on any type of fuel without any modifications, It can be converted to a heat engine harvesting waste heat.
To date, Cyclone has over 1,000 hours of running (on fuel!) and testing of the engines, They have achieved verified thermal efficiencies above 30%, and is very close to putting the first of these engine models into small-scale commercial production.
Popular Science magazine named the clean, green Cyclone Engine as the 2008 Invention of the Year. the engine’s inventor and company CEO, Harry Schoell has followed a path that would be a good example for many investors and researchers. “In less than a few years he has systematically undertaken the development and building of a company in a very professional way. i am not endorsing the technology but the processes of how to take something from the drawing board to market. There is still a ways to go, but progress is being made as will be illustrated in the following press release.
