RYAN LUGO – 6/15/2021 Advancing technology can keep conventional engines humming for decades. Combustion engines won’t completely disappear any time soon, if ever. Certain transportation tasks or operating environments simply don’t lend themselves to battery- or hydrogen-powered electric propulsion. A century and a half of research and development has greatly … Read More

Is Lightning-Fast Plasma the Key to a Cleaner Car Engine?

Ashley GeorgeAll, Spotlights, Technology

DANIEL OBERHAUS – 9/9/2020 Researchers have long experimented with “lean burn” engines, which boost efficiency and reduce the emissions from combustion. But getting them to ignite is tricky. THERE ARE SOMETHING like a billion cars on the world’s roads today and almost all of them are powered by internal combustion. … Read More
