MSU researchers create a new engine prototype

From PhysOrg.com:

Researchers at Michigan State University have built a prototype, based on the research first released in 2009, of the Wave Disk Generator — an engine that does not have pistons, crankshafts or valves.

This new model, which does away with the internal combustion engine of the past, has the potential to reduce auto emissions up to 90 percent, when compared to the current emissions level. This is because the engine uses roughly 60 percent of its fuel for propulsion, when you compare this to the typical cars engine that uses only 15 percent of fuel for propulsion, we can see how the increase is possible.
