Engine of Change
Battery electric? Internal combustion?
There is actually a third way. One that is cleaner than battery electric, but with the low cost and high scalability of internal combustion. And far better for the environment than either.
The Engine, RevolutioniZED
The internal combustion engine needs to retire. Why? Inefficiency. According to the Department of Energy, conventional engines converts 70% of fuel to heat. That’s wasted energy that doesn’t do anything except help pollute the environment.
ZED Engine’s patented, clean, ultra-high efficiency CHP-BC-EC design uses both heat and pressure generated through combustion in a revolutionary way, and not through internal combustion.
The result is a far more efficient, powerful, quiet, and naturally clean power unit with a much lower lifecycle carbon footprint than battery electric power, no e-waste, and no taxpayer subsidies required.
IF IT MOVES, TURNS, OR BURNS, IT CAN BE POWERED BY ZED.
ZED Engine power units can replace conventional engines in virtually everything. From cars and trucks, to scooters and motorcycles, watercraft, generators, pumps, and military equipment. In extreme heat or cold conditions. Cleanly. Quietly. Efficiently. Powerfully. With low production and operating costs, and no taxpayer subsidies required for infrastructure or purchase incentives. ZED can power them all.
ZED powertrains can be used to power various aircraft and drones, with significantly greater efficiency.
ZED power units can power vehicles, generators and equipment without substantial platform or manufacturing modifications.
ZED powertrains run cleanly, quietly, and with high power and efficiency, making them a natural fit for any watercraft.
A CLEAN SHEET APPROACH TO A CLEAN AIR SOLUTION.
ZED Engine power units offer the best of all possible worlds. They have all the power, low cost, and convenience of fuel, while providing the lowest overall environmental impact on our planet.
Until it runs out.
Don’t let the hype fool you. There aren't enough known reserves of lithium, cobalt, neodymium, and copper in the world to convert 100% of vehicles to battery electric power, let alone the 200+ million internal combustion engines produced annually across all industries (and growing). And the energy required to locate and mine these materials will generate staggering amounts of pollution. What happens then?
ZED power units are a far superior solution. They can operate with trace-to-zero emissions on just about any kind of fuel. Renewable or fossil, liquid or gaseous, be it Hydrogen, Gasoline, Natural Gas/CNG, Ethanol, Diesel, Jet A1, even peanut oil. ZED power units will never run out of fuel sources and can provide cleaner power on a per-unit or global scale than battery electric could ever achieve. Ever.
The Lowest Possible Environmental Impact
ZED power units are designed for the lowest possible environmental impact:
Designed as a simple “swap” with any conventional internal combustion engine.
Lower carbon emissions than battery electric power on a lifecycle basis.
All-fuel capable, be it renewable or fossil, gaseous or liquid.
Made from benign 100% recyclable materials, compared to the environmental damage caused by lithium and cobalt mining, processing, and transportation.
No end-of-life environmental damage and 100% recyclable, compared to the 54 million tons (and growing) of e-waste dumped every year.
20% lighter in weight.
1/3 fewer parts, with no radiator cooling system or catalytic converters needed.
Less costly to produce and to operate.
Significantly more efficient and powerful with instant torque.
