£7.7m boost for zero-emission engine

ENGINEERING experts are a step closer to developing an engine that boasts near-zero emissions thanks to a government grant.

Work on the world’s first near-zero emission engine received a boost after the University of Brighton received £7.7 million in grants towards a new centre of engineering excellence.

The money will be injected into the university’s £150 million redevelopment scheme for its Moulsecoomb campus in Brighton.

The Central Research Laboratory (CRL) will be a 55,000 sq ft business incubation centre – a cutting-edge facility to support hi-tech and design-led manufacturing and to commercialise university research.

Professor Morgan Heikal (pictured), of Thermofluids in the school of computing, said the money will be used to fund research into projects like the near-zero emissions engine.
