BEETRON FREE PISTON GENERATOR

Our team is developing a Free Piston Linear Generator that will achieve up to 50% electrical efficiency - same as for large conventional power plants. The effect is based on the free piston concept that differs vastly from a crankshaft-bound piston engine. Besides these energy savings the Free Piston combustion process leads to a significant reduction in CO2, NOx and HC emissions.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

  • High compression ratio and piston acceleration, less heat loss, HCCI combustion can be realised

  • Multi fuel capable (natural gas, biogas, heating oil, diesel, gasoline, ethanol, hydrogen, solar synthesis gas)

  • Oil-free operation through no side forces

  • Less parts / friction / weight / maintenance

  • Less fuel consumption / emissions / operational costs
