Abstract:

Two-cycle engines historically are the preferred choice among light industrial and recreational equipment manufacturers. These engines are also excessively dirty due to design elements that haven't changed in over 60 years. Pending legislation aimed at reducing emissions from these engines has put current two- cycle technology in jeopardy. Implementation of patented induction and combustion processes to eliminate several inherent design flaws common to current two-cycle engine designs that contribute to excessive exhaust emissions. The proposed design improvements will retain all the benefits of a simple, light-weight, high output two-cycle engine, but produce lower emissions and significantly reduce environmental impacts. Research will play a critical role in determining the optimum configurations of our proposed technology to maximize all of the benefits available. Interests have been aligned with a local state university and will utilize its facilities to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed design. Engineers have been enlisted from a local university and outside resources with the intent of researching and developing a low emissions-high two-cycle engine design that can be configured to fit any existing application, meet future emissions standards and capable of competing in this multi-dollar international market.
