New technology converts atmospheric heat to electricity

A US firm has developed engine technology that produces power, by absorbing heat from atmospheric air, at any temperature, producing zero emissions and using no fossil or nuclear fuels.

Entropy Systems Inc., (ESI) says that after seven years and $3.4 million of investment, it has developed engines that are “Room Temperature Superconductors” of heat, requiring no cryogenic liquids or any fuel storage systems and can be used to run Automobiles, Boats, Lawnmowers and Generators.

Conventional engines can only convert high temperature heat to power, which is produced by burning fossil fuels. The ESI engine takes room temperature air, absorbs heat from the air like a sponge, converts, that heat to power and exhausts air at a lower temperature. This low-temperature exhaust can be used for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning. Thus the ESI engine is both an Engine and a Refrigerator. An electric generator coupled to this engine produces electricity. ESI says its engines can operate year round in any kind of weather and have efficiencies higher than any conventional engines, refrigerators or Fuel Cells.

Patents on this technology are approved by the United States of America, Australia and the European Economic Community. Sanjay Amin is the inventor of this technology. His book on Thermodynamics was published in 1994 and he received the ASEI, Engineer of the year award in 1996. Sanjay has several patents to his name. Tests on developmental prototypes were conducted at Youngstown State University, Purdue University and Pennsylvania State University.
