The University of Brighton has been given £1 million funding to develop ultra-efficient engines.

The University of Brighton has been given £1 million to develop ultra-efficient engines which will allow vehicles to travel further on less fuel.

The four-university research group, which is headed by Brighton, will also attempt to work towards engines with near-zero emissions.

Dr  Robert Morgan, of the university’s School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics and lead researcher, said: “This is really exciting news and moves us closer to  developing ultra-efficient fuels and engines.”
