I made a few changes on the Freedom Motors website over the last couple of weeks. Some of these changes were only cosmetic, but I also added a collection of brochures and whitepapers that can be downloaded in PDF format. There is a “Documents” page under the “About Us” menu where you can download these new documents.
We published 4 new whitepapers on the website about the Rotapower engine that cover performance, emissions, reliability and manufacturability. These short papers have a wealth of information about the Rotapower engine, its development history and technological advantages. I’m including links to papers here:
- 9911 The Reliability of the Rotapower® Engine
- 9912 The Operation and Performance of the Charge Cooled Rotapower® Rotary Engine vs. Oil Cooled Rotor Rotary Engines
- 9913 The Emissions Performance of the Rotapower®
- 9914 The Manufacturability of the Rotapower® Engine
In other news, some of you may have noticed that I published on Facebook a “sneak peak” photo of the biogas generator prototype that is being built by our partner in Canada (image below). The generator is almost complete – they are waiting on a few final components before initial testing is started. We plan is to install the generator at Cape Breton University where it will undergo rigorous testing in a laboratory setting. This will give us many advantages as we can carefully control the fuel mix and closely monitor emissions as well.
Dr. Paluru and I are traveling to India next week to meet with investor groups as well as government officials. On this trip we are pursuing both investment funding and future high-volume manufacturing capability. We will be back just before Christmas.
I took a couple photos this week of Dr. Moller and Dr. Paluru holding one of our latest model 530cc engines. This 32 pound engine has a maximum output of 125 HP when running on ethanol.
