A British clean tech start-up claims their ‘green’ engine could halve fuel consumption compared to conventional engines.

ULTRaMo Engines says its new design could reach about 70 per cent overall efficiency, compared to 30 per cent efficiency for traditional engines. The savings are achieved by capturing energy usually lost as heat through the engine’s exhaust and radiator.

The Sussex-based firm is looking to secure up to £400,000 to fund the development of three prototype engines and begin commercialising the technology.
