Carnot aims to reduce global CO2 emissions by 13% to accelerate the world's transition to net-zero and bring clean, secure and affordable energy to all. Carnot plans to achieve this by developing ultra-efficient hydrogen combustion engines built from advanced technical ceramics.

  • Engines to decarbonise the market, reducing global CO2 emissions by 13%
  • Awarded £257,000 in equity-free government grant funding
  • We estimate Long-haul transport & off-grid energy markets are worth £58.2bn
  • Proprietary technology (patent filed)

Idea

Emissions legislation is forcing large engine producers to innovate. They have no alternatives to diesel engines for HGV and must be 30% more efficient by 2030 or face est. annual penalties of >£100B. Metal engines, unable to withstand fuel combustion temperatures, waste 1/3 of fuel energy to cooling & have operating efficiencies of only 30%. If emissions targets are to be met, this waste must end.

Carnot is developing a game-changing engine that aims to bring operating efficiencies up to 70%, halving fuel costs. Our vision is to drive target markets to net zero emissions via adoption of biofuel- & hydrogen-powered Carnot engines, reducing global CO2 by 13%. To facilitate this, they will operate on existing fuels, halving emissions & enabling industries to avoid financial penalties.

Achievements:

-Awarded a £157K Innovate UK Grant to develop an energy access solution in Sub-Saharan Africa

-Awarded a place on OGTC Tech X accelerator, in partnership with BP, Equinor & KPMG with £100K funding

-Strategic relationship formed with Fraunhofer IKTS, a European leading research institute on advanced ceramics

-Funds raised are to complete Phase 1 & run a prototype. We will then target Venture Capital to fund development & lead to industrial partnerships

In 1824 Mr. Sadi Carnot worked out that the maximum theoretical engine efficiency is ~85%. Help us on our mission to turn theory into reality.
