Plasma ignition may hit market soon
In principle, plasma ignition is applying electrical voltage to the atomized fuel stream prior to combustion. The long chain of hydrocarbons in the fuel is broken down into smaller parts, allowing a more complete burn. The net results are better fuel efficiency and less pollution.
Team leader Louis Rosocha says the need for cleaner burning vehicles is driving the research. PerriQuest, a company that usually works on defense technologies, says it's dedicated to making plasma technology a viable commercial product.
