Ground and marine Transportation
While some work is being done to increase battery efficiency, hybrid trucks is the most sustainable solution in the next 20 years for long range routes. A hybrid truck consumes up to ~50% less diesel fuel/CO2, which can become even more efficient with an Inside-out ceramic turbine (ICT) range extender.
The ICT range extender could reduce by roughly 60% the weight of the power source over a diesel counterpart and could increase by 10% the attainable range with the same amount of fuel (compared to hybrid diesel/electric), thanks to improved efficiency.
Up to 30% CO2 reduction using natural gas.
Up to 5kW/kg and up to 50% thermal efficiency.
Foreign object damage resistant and designed to meet turbine reliability levels.
Service only once a year.
Low cost molded ceramic turbine blades without complex cooling features.
Replacing Diesel by low cost fuels such as natural gas results in 20% fuel savings.
