Who (or WHAT) is DyneGen?

DyneGen is The Future of Engines.
Brand new, market-disruptive technologies and capabilities to design and manufacture large-displacement (> 7.5 liter/400 kw [bored and stroked to 9.4 liters for most applications]) multi-fuel engines that will make significant improvements in energy utilization (mpg), reliability, and reduction in CO2 emissions.


Now, before we go on with our sales pitch, please join us as we go back through the mists of time - back to where it all began - just to show you that we're serious about our business and we've done our homework! The DyneGen Research Team presents its findings on the subject of:


...wait… hold on… that's not right... change that...


Although various forms of internal combustion engines were developed before the 19th century, their use was hindered until the commercial drilling and production of petroleum began in the mid-1850s. But first, let's go all the way back to...

The 17th Century: Christiaan Huygens designs gunpowder to drive water pumps, to supply 3000 cubic meters of water/day for the Versailles palace gardens, essentially creating the first idea of a rudimentary internal combustion piston engine

- 1794: Robert Steele built a compressionless engine whose principle of operation would dominate for nearly a century

- 1823: Samuel Brown patented the first internal combustion engine to be applied industrially. It was compressionless and based on what Hardenberg calls the "Leonardo cycle," which, as the name implies, was already out of date at that time

- 1824: French physicist Sadi Carnot established the thermodynamic theory of idealized heat engines. This scientifically established the need for compression to increase the difference between the upper and lower working temperatures

- 1838: A patent was granted to William Barnett (English). According to Dugald Clerk, this was the first recorded use of in-cylinder compression

- 1854: Eugenio Barsanti and Felice Matteucci invented an engine that was possibly the first 4-cycle engine, but the patent was lost

- 1856: In Florence at Fonderia del Pignone (now Nuovo Pignone, later a subsidiary of General Electric), Pietro Benini realized a working prototype of the Italian engine supplying 5 HP. In subsequent years he developed more powerful engines—with one or two pistons—which served as steady power sources, replacing steam engines.

- 1857: Eugenio Barsanti and Felice Matteucci describe the principles of the free piston engine where the vacuum after the explosion allows atmospheric pressure to deliver the power stroke (British patent No 1625). Otto and Langen were the first to make a marketable engine based on this concept 10 years later.

- 1884: British engineer Edward Butler constructed the first petrol (gasoline) ICE and invented the spark plug

- 1892: Dr. Rudolf Diesel developed his Carnot heat engine type motor

- 1893: February 23: Dr. Rudolf Diesel received a patent for his compression ignition (diesel) engine

- 1900: Dr. Rudolf Diesel demonstrated the diesel engine in the 1900 Exposition Universelle (World's Fair) using peanut oil fuel (the first use of bio-diesel fuel??)

- 1905: Alfred Buchi patents the turbocharger and starts producing the first examples

- 1925: The Hesselman engine is introduced by Swedish engineer Jonas Hesselman represented the first use of direct gasoline injection on a spark-ignition engine

- 1926-1999: Lots of development and many accomplishments in the area of jet engine technology - it was a good time for the aviation industry

- 2000: Back on the ground, there's a new BUZZ word (or two): "Alternative Fuels…and engines"

- 2001-2009: Not much else went down until early 2010...

...and then came DyneGen!

(and in case you missed it on the HOMEPAGE) DyneGen is an advanced engine technology company focused on the design and production of high performance engines optimized for use with alternative fuels.

The DyneGen family of new energy ICE products spans the alternative fuel spectrum - from the more common (CNG and propane) to the more esoteric (syn-gas and bio diesel) and everything in between, such as hydrogen, ammonia and others.

So, sit back and fasten your seat belt - enjoy the ride as you watch DyneGen make HISTORY...




We have combined our own history of high performance knowledge coupled with proven industrial engine experience to create a new engine line. We have a track-record of providing dependability (over 250 million hours) in the field with 24/7/52 operation on natural gas (well-head gas). DyneGen engines have the muscle to produce diesel-like power while running clean on natural gas - and the ability to run on multiple alternative fuels!

Excellent Dyno results prove that our 9.4L naturally aspirated, spark ignited, port fuel injected engine, running on CNG will challenge any product in the naturally aspirated compressed natural gas market. Add our super-charger and... look out diesels!

DyneGen brings engines to the market with revolutionary technologies and intellectual property that represent a combination of patents and trade secrets (Shhhh! Don't ask!) of both DyneGen and its business partners. The control systems, valves, injectors and tanks covering the first two product releases are all proprietary new technology.
