FIRST OF SERIES - Internal vs External Combustion
Cyclone Engine White Paper
POSTED October 2019
"Nitrogen and oxygen are present in the ambient air, which means they're present in the air-fuel mixture combusted in all
gasoline and diesel engines. During high temperature/high pressure combustion, these elements combine to form nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Concentrations of NOx in untreated diesel exhaust are typically between 50 and 1000 parts per million (ppm) but can be many times higher.
It is not possible to design an internal combustion engine that does not produce NOx when it burns fuel.
BUT CYCLONE HAS DESIGNED A LOW TEMPERATURE EXTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE THAT BRINGS NOx LEVELS TO NEAR-ZERO OR ZERO."
"Today, steam engines again have the potential to power cars, trucks, busses, trains and other forms of modern transportationin
ways that are simpler, cleaner, quieter and less reliant on fossil fuels than current practical alternatives."

Zero Energy Houses
...how to design and construct buildings to use zero energy from external power grids, be carbon neutral, and be built and
operated at fair market values. This paper is a contribution to the many possible Zero Energy House (ZEH) solutions that
deserve further attention.
