2. ALTERNATE DRIVE SOURCES

The two major reasons we need an alternative engine are
environmental pollution and a limited supply of fossil fuels.

To date, there are three basic approaches to powering
automobiles, generators, and other engines:

1. Piston Engines - Internal Combustion Engine (ICE)

The gasoline-powered piston engine has been around for
over a century now and is currently the default power
source for many applications. There are two major
disadvantages to this engine: heavy pollution and a limited
source of fossil fuels. Some automobile manufacturers are
now testing hybrid engines, and have tried converting
piston engines from gasoline to hydrogen power (For
example, Suzuki and Mercedes-Benz).

2. Electric Motors

Solar panels have been used to power experimental
electrical cars with little or no commercial prospect.

Several automobile manufacturers are experimenting with
using fuel cells (nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries) to
power electric drive motors (For example, Honda FCX-V4,
Toyota FCHZ-4, and Ford Focus FCV).

3. Wankel Rotary Engine/Otto 4-Cycle Engine

The Mazda automobile uses the gasoline-powered Wankel
Rotary Engine and has had success with converting it to be
fueled by hydrogen. There are still some hydrocarbons
found in the exhaust.

We at The Bastian Motor Co. see the True Rotary Engine
(TRE) as the next best step towards reducing pollution
emissions and increasing engine efficiency.

The True Rotary Engine (TRE) would be much less
complex than either the Wankel Rotary Engine or the
Piston Engine, therefore much less expensive to produce.
There are significantly less hydrocarbons in the exhaust
making this engine much more friendly in living spaces.
