Clean - Efficient - Power
At YAN Engines, we are developing Differential stroke-Cycle piston technology (D-Cycle)
that will enable manufacturers to make their engines with higher power-density and more fuel efficient.
* 2015 Winner - SXSW Eco Startup Showcase
Our D-Cycle replaces the traditional piston in an internal combustion engine with a vertically split-piston. This results in a fundamental shift in how the engine produces power. By achieving four engines strokes in a single crankshaft revolution (instead of two revolutions), the D-Cycle increases power density and improves fuel efficiency by 20%.
By integrating D-Cycle pistons into a Ford Ecoboost 1.0L, YAN Engines improved the fuel efficiency of the best production engine in the world by 20%.
YAN Engines retrofitted a U.S. Department of Defense Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) convoy truck engine with D-Cycle.
Yan Engines is a growing startup company, working on a new internal combustion engine (ICE) technology, seeking forward-looking, fast-learning, multi-talented, and self-motivated individuals.
