New Eco-Friendly Engine Prototype Developed by MSU Researchers

A team of researchers at the Michigan State University have recently developed prototype for an internal combustion engine that could revolutionize the world. Unlike the current engines, the new prototype is capable of reducing auto emissions up to 90 percent.
According to the researchers, this engine is based on the research first released in 2009, of the Wave Disk Generator, that does not have valves, pistons or crankshafts.
The typical cars engine uses only 15 percent of fuel for propulsion, but the new model uses around 60 percent of its fuel for propulsion. It is also built with a disc-shaped shock wave generator (having the size of a sauce pan) and will require no cooling system, mission regulation of fuels or transmission system.
The engine is composed of a rotor with a wave-like pattern carved into channels. This way, the air and fuel passes and mix through the central inlets. Then, the exit of gasses will be blocked after the rotor starts spinning. To makes your car car move perfectly well, the engine uses a shockwave effect that compresses the mixture.
When the engine will be available on the market, i guess it will have a great success. I say this because the new model needs less maintenance costs and in the same time is environment-friendly.
