Several aspects of the Cyclone make it more
eco-friendly than internal combustion engines.
- Fuel Choice: The Cyclone Engine can run on 100% biofuels
(i.e., it does not require a 15% or less mixture with fossil fuels),
and these new sources can provide true carbon-neutral alternatives
to fossil fuels.
- Longer Burn Time: The Cyclone Engine’s patented cyclonic
combustion chamber allows for a longer burn time, which means that
more carbon particles are incinerated before being exhausted.
- Lower Burn Temps: The Cyclone Engine burns its fuel at
low temperatures (about 2200°F), which is below the temperature at
which most harmful NOx gases are created.
- Cooler Exhaust: Exhausted gases run through a heat
exchanger before leaving the engine, lowering the temperature at
release to about 350 degrees … hundreds of degrees lower than
internal combustion exhaust.
- No Motor Oil: Water (de-ionized) is the Cyclone Engine’s
sole lubricating fluid, which means there is no waste oil to change,
dispose or leak into the ground.
- Quieter Run: Internal combustion engines have an
explosion that emits supersonic sound waves out the exhaust valves
to the atmosphere, requiring a muffler system. The Cyclone’s exhaust
is virtually noise-free.
All these benefits are achieved without costly and
complicated exhaust-tempering equipment such as catalytic converters.
Clean, cool and quiet is the very nature of the Cyclone Engine.
Algae fuel is an attractive choice for the Cyclone engine as it requires little or no refining to burn clean and efficiently compared to other fuels and will be a renewable source of energy for years to come.
