New Engine Technology

New Engine Technology

The CIBC Engine:

The Cavitation-Ignition Bubble Combustion (CIBC) engine is a new discovery in green energy technology that could replace fossil fuel altogether.

For the past twenty-five years, a small research company, Micro-Combustion, Inc. has dedicated themselves to the development of a new engine prototype based on the physics of cavitation-ignition bubble combustion. The basic idea behind this new engine is simple but revolutionary: it utilizes a small air bubble in a fluid (the fuel) as the combustion chamber to compress, ignite, and capture the energy derived from the heat release of the combustion of the fuel-air contents of the bubble. The fuel also happens to be the working fluid, which drives the turbine blades to extract power. The CIBC engine can run on just about any liquid hydrocarbon fuel, including plant, mineral, or recycled oils.

Although the CIBC engine can operate on petroleum based fuels, it does not require it. Its ability to operate on alternative liquid fuels holds the potential, if fully realized, to transform the transportation sector by reducing or eliminating our nation’s reliance on domestic or imported petroleum-based fuels. The physics and chemistry of the CIBC engine has been tested by NASA scientists who, in a report dated August 2005, found that the CIBC concept is indeed real and potentially capable of producing power.

If used to power an automobile, the engine would be about the size of a basketball, have fewer than a dozen moving parts, and would achieve remarkable fuel efficiency upwards of the equivalent of 100 miles per gallon.

Because the ignition is encapsulated inside tiny bubbles, which then serve to absorb and trap gaseous emissions that are soluble in the liquid fuel (such as carbon dioxide) there are near-zero emissions.

At the present stage of development, it is reasonable to assume that a new thermodynamic process (or engine cycle) similar to the Diesel engine, but with greater thermodynamic efficiency (due to the high peak bubble temperature) has been demonstrated. As Diesel engines already have a higher thermodynamic efficiency than gasoline internal combustion engines (Otto cycle), the potential is that the CIBC engine would now be the highest thermodynamic efficiency automotive engine to date.

The content you have provided is pretty interesting and useful and I will surely take note of the point you have made in the blog.

A few days back I was browsing the Internet as I was worried about my car performance and wanted a product that could restore the MPG to what it was when I bought my car. I found this great site power enhancer which sells a variety of automotive products to boost vehicle performance. I found exactly what I was looking for and saw great results with their product. I was also very happy with the quick delivery of the product.

I thought this information might be useful for anyone looking to boost their vehicle performance and restore the lost power and MPG. renewable energy and green newswire
