The Scuderi split-cycle engine technology is not new to our pages. Last year around this time, we had an opportunity to interview Nick Scuderi about the company and came away thinking that the idea, though unproven, has some merit. According to an article on Automotive News, Scuderi is confident that they will line up some licensing agreements to use their technology shortly. Apparently, some amount of validation has been completed recently which offered promising results.

Diesel Scuderi engines could post 30 to 50 percent lower nitrous oxide emissions according to the company and gasoline/compressed-air hybrids are also in development. Still, real test-engines are not yet up and running, so there is a long way to go before anybody will know for sure if this engine design is able to meet its expectations. Watch a video after the break of a simulated rendering of the Scuderi engine in action.
