Re: new internal combustion engine that does not generate carbon dioxide
Researchers from Valencia’s Polytechnic University (UPV) have designed a new internal combustion engine (ICE) that does not generate carbon dioxide and other harmful gases.

It is a “revolutionary” engine that both meets the regulation on emissions planned for 2040 and also has high efficiency.

The technology used for the new ICE design uses MIEC ceramic membranes. These membranes remove CO2 and NOx, capturing its own CO2 and the environmental CO2 and liquefying it.

Funny thing, is I don;t think the new bidet' regualations actually care about reducing CO2, they are more about making it impossible to get a car that is affordable for the middle class(by jacking fleet mileage standards up to 40mpg)....

It's really ashame that Volkswagen was slapped with that massive lawsuit (ridiculous since every other auto manufacturer cheats on emmissions) because since that lawsuit, VW has stopped selling some of their best vehicles and engines in America. For example, in Europe you can buy a variant of the Golf with a turbodiesel that gets nearly 60mgp. And it is not only sufficiently powerful but clean and efficient.

Re: new internal combustion engine that does not generate carbon dioxide
you can design anything you want, and it will work to solve problems, but in the end its all just a futile excercize, a slap in the face of complacency because nothing will ever be done about it.

We have all the solutions in the world but people don't get it. They don't want to change. They are stuck, cannot imagine changing on a fundamental level, because it requires qualities they have not found in themselves.

Courage, humiliation, atonement, forgiveness, sincere effort to change. People think they are powerless to outside authorities, and cannot take the initiative make a difference even to diet. To them to speak of new inventions is an opportunity all bullshit talk with a cynical nod and toast to the nihilism of our times.

A solution for a problem that doesn't exist. CO2 is a harmless plant food. We could use many times more than we have in the atmosphere. The Earth is rapidly cooling. We need to be able to grow food in the shortened growing seasons of our new ice age.

Correct. Carbon, 6 neutron 6 electrons 6 protons.

Efficiency.
No matter how you filter the exhaust:

Ice engines are ONLY 15-25% "efficient". for every dollar you put in the tank only15-25 cents worth moves the vehicle forward. The rest of the energy created (heat) is tossed overboard into the windstream through the coolant system or exhaust. Or lost to mechanical friction and Pumping losses.

An electric motor has three moving parts the rotor, and the two bearings that support it. Not much if any of a transmission is required. No clutches. valves. timing chains; oil& fuel pumps. O r the 1500or so , moving parts that require lubrication ,adjustment, and replacement..

Electrics are 90-95% efficient. 90-95 cents of every dollar of energy is used to move the vehicle; and that is reason enough. They are just "better" in every measure.

Battery chemistry improves every week.

this is the new montra (ICE is bad!!).... yet battery vehicles are NOT practical in heavy trucking/AG..
