Dalhousie University Engine Design Headed to Commercialization
from Daily Business Buzz
A lighter and more energy-efficient engine technology developed at Dalhousie University is on its way to being commercialized. The university announced Tuesday it has signed an exclusive world-wide licensing agreement with York Bridge Enterprises, a private equity firm that focuses on supporting early-stage Canadian technology companies. "Dalhousie is home to world-class researchers developing innovative technologies that compete on a global scale," said George Smitherman, a founding partner of York Bridge. "This is reflected in Darrel Doman and Braden Murphy and their pneumatic technology." Engineering masters student Braden Murphy and his professor Darrel Doman developed a new type of compact Pneumatic Rotary Engine, which does mechanical work by expanding compressed air.
