The Libralato SMART engine is a compelling new concept of engine architecture and thermodynamic cycle, an historic breakthrough in internal combustion engine design, solving the problems of the Wankel engine (poor combustion, overheating, seal wear) through its exchange of gases between three dynamic chambers, its highly efficient geometry and its non-contact labyrinth sealing. Predicted to be more efficient than a diesel engine (40-50%) using gasoline, but 50% smaller and 30-50% lower cost, it enables plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) systems to fit into standard engine bays, reducing mineral fuel consumption by 70% and CO2 by 55% (well-to-wheel), breaking the car’s addiction to oil, cost competitively.

Description of SE/ Org Founded in 2008, Libralato Ltd. aims to revive the legacy of Rolls Royce in its deprived inner-city birthplace. In Hulme, Manchester. Invented by Ruggero Libralato, the Libralato SMART engine – Simplified Multi-Axial Rotary Technology – is an eco-engine for the 21st century. After 5 years of painstaking analysis of working prototypes and £1.4m development costs, Libralato has finally ironed out the devil in the detail of its historic breakthrough in engine design; an enabling technology for a mass transition to low cost, long range and convenient electrified vehicles.
