In his recent blog post, Bill Gates discusses the re-engineering of the combustion engine to a simpler more efficient design by EcoMotors.  I had recently attended an AIChE Boston conference where the panel addressed the development of biofuels and the discussion centered on fuels and hybrid solutions holding the greatest promise.

I had remembered a sizable cash prize offered sometime ago to anyone who could provide a credible alternative to the combustion engine and asked one of the panelist if a significant advancement in engine design would also offer a solution to the energy problem.  The post on EcoMotors presents an exciting potential change in engine design and could, combined with other energy and hybrid initiatives be the missing link to solving the energy efficient low impact transportation challenge:  EcoMotors-Reinventing-the-Internal-Combustion-Engine.
