A Dolphin N2 engine developed at the University of Brighton highlights the state-of-the-art research being undertaken throughout our members. The invention is seen as one of the most significant advances in engine design in years and is being hailed as extremely efficient, making it more comparable to a fuel cell than to a traditional engine. It also produces near-zero emissions of harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) – a world first that has been pioneered by the University.
This is the cleanest, high-efficiency engine that exists in the public domain and has enormous potential as a clean device using sustainable fuels made from everyday wastes. This will lead to far less pollution being emitted by heavy duty vehicles and, perhaps, by other transport modes including diesel trains and ships.
