Dr. Nikolay Shkolnik
Liquid Piston, Inc.

Dr. Nikolay Shkolnik, an entrepreneur and inventor, and his son Alexander, a PhD student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, have invented a patented novel engine architecture, which will enable the engine to reach 50% fuel efficiency and drastically reduce pollutant emissions, compared to existing engines. The engine is based on a patent-pending "High Efficiency Hybrid Cycle" (HEHC) thermodynamic cycle, borrowing elements from Otto, Diesel, Atkinson, and Rankine cycles. Several critical design features make the LiquidPiston engine architecture both versatile and capable of outperforming conventional engines on all parameters.
