Cyclone Power Technologies’ Multi-Fuel, Green Engine Receives Tenth International Patent

POMPANO BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cyclone Power Technologies (Pink Sheets: CYPW) received notification that Mexico has joined the United States, the European Union, China and other nations in issuing a patent on Cyclone’s multi-fuel, heat regenerative external combustion engine.

“We believe that the commercialization of these engines can help solve many issues we face today, from environmental sustainability to fossil fuel independence.”

The Cyclone engine is a modern steam engine, providing substantial improvements in thermal efficiency, power densities and operating characteristics over what many people envision when they think of steam engines. Cyclone engines have been verified to run at over 30% efficiency, with even higher efficiencies expected in the near future, exceeding current gas-powered engines. Such performance means less fuel consumption and fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

By its nature and design, Cyclone engines are considerably cleaner than current internal combustion engines, and run on virtually any fuel including carbon neutral bio-fuels. The Cyclone has been tested on over a dozen such plant-based fuels, none of which require any engine modifications. Additionally, the Cyclone does not idle, meaning that in cars, trucks and busses it will use far less fuel during city driving and traffic conditions.

“We’re pleased to receive this new patent as we near completion of several engine prototypes for transportation applications as well as renewable power generators, solar thermal and waste heat recovery systems,” stated Cyclone’s CEO, Harry Schoell. “We believe that the commercialization of these engines can help solve many issues we face today, from environmental sustainability to fossil fuel independence.”

The current Mexican patent marks the tenth international patent for Cyclone. The company also currently holds eight patents for the engine and its components in the United States.

CORPORATE PROFILE

Cyclone Power Technologies is the developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine – an eco-friendly external combustion engine with the power and versatility to run everything from portable electric generators and garden equipment to cars, trucks and locomotives. Invented by company founder and CEO Harry Schoell, the patented Cyclone Engine is a modern day steam engine, ingeniously designed to achieve high thermal efficiencies through a compact heat-regenerative process, and to run on virtually any fuel - including bio-diesels, syngas or solar - while emitting fewer greenhouse gases and irritating pollutants into the air. Currently in its late stages of development, the Cyclone Engine was recognized by Popular Science Magazine as the Invention of the Year for 2008, and was presented with the Society of Automotive Engineers’ AEI Tech Award in 2006 and 2008. Additionally, Cyclone was recently named Environmental Business of the Year by the Broward County Environmental Protection Department. For more information, visit www.cyclonepower.com.
