Implosion Combustion (IC)
• A process that occurs when a combustible gaseous mixture is ignited by the high temperatures found inside a rapidly collapsing bubble.
• At ignition, the bubble expands, creating net energy that can be captured for mechanical purposes.
The technology presents an important opportunity to be developed as a waste heat recovery device that could improve meaningfully the fuel efficiency of turbocharged diesel and other current engine technologies.
It also has the potential to change the way we think about engines because the concept enables:
• A reduction of moving parts.
• Significant weight reduction due to its small size.
• The use of cheaper, unrefined fuels and much less fuel.
• A reduction of greenhouse gases
