This research project consists of developing a revolutionary internal-combustion, true rotary engine. Initially gasoline-powered, the True Rotary Engine (TRE) will have less moving parts and will produce far less toxic emissions from the exhaust. It uses fewer petroleum products for lubrication or fuel and provides increased efficiency. This engine is considerably lighter in weight than the four-stroke piston engine and could be developed for many applications such as the automobile engine, generating electricity in private homes, and portable energy sources.
Globally, the implications are more profound than in the United States. Many developing countries do not have the electric power grid that we have. They could, therefore, never have to develop such an electric grid over difficult terrain. Each home or small community could have it’s own power source from this new highly efficient, pollution-reduced engine.
