POMPANO BEACH, Fla.—Florida-based Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. is teaming up with Ohio State University’s Center for Automotive Research (CAR) in a bid to commercialize its external combustion engine technology.

According to Cyclone, the development and testing program of its waste heat engine model is now underway with the help of the research centre at OSU.

The CAR at OSU, based in Columbus, Ohio, is located only 30 miles from the site of Cyclone’s manufacturing partner, Precision CNC.

Cyclone’s waste heat engine is designed to recapture heat from external sources like commercial or small-scale industrial ovens or furnaces, landfill, engine exhaust (from vehicles or power generators) and biomass combustion to create steam which powers the engine.
