Brighton students take to zero gravity

Our team of engineering students successfully tested their trailblazing technology in zero-gravity conditions in Bordeaux. PHP Cubed – Georgie Crewdson, Tom Critchley, Matteo Pontecorvo, Liam Ardagh and Alex Evans – were one of only two student teams to travel to Bordeaux as part of the European Space Agency’s ‘Fly Your Thesis!’ competition. The team’s experiments…

Groundbreaking engine that can clean air

Our researchers have developed a groundbreaking engine that produces exhaust gases cleaner than the air it sucks in. In this extensive feature on BBC SouthEast, our Professor Rob Morgan explains exactly how the engine works and how it can reduce emissions.

Our research is driving the way to zero-emission engines

Ground breaking new engine technology, based on world-leading research at the University of Brighton, is opening the way to production of the worlds’ first near zero-emission heavy internal combustion engine. The CryoPower Cool Combustion process enables recovery of otherwise wasted exhaust heat which is then cooled via the injection of a small amount of liquid…
