MYT-6 Engine for Sale in 40kW Genset
Angel Labs announced today that it has entered into a three-way arrangement to bring its 6-inch Massive Yet Tiny (MYT) engine to market powering a 40 kW genset distributed by Industrial Green Power Inc (IGPI) that runs on 100% biodiesel fuel provided by Titan
Biodiesel. Delivery beginning February 2012.

will be a six-inch version of the engine, capable of supporting
continuous operation of a 40 kW synchronous alternator.

This is the big development I said we would be announcing soon. An
abbreviated version of this story was distributed on May 23 as a press release
to the wire services. The following expanded version is exclusive to PESN.
Angel Labs LLC of Folsom, California, announced today that it has entered into a three-way arrangement to bring its 6-inch Massive Yet Tiny (MYT) engine to market powering a 40 kW genset distributed by Industrial Green Power Inc (IGPI) that runs on 100% biodiesel fuel provided by Titan Biodiesel. The agreement represents a multi-year, multi-million dollar opportunity for Angel Labs and culminates many months of efforts seeking strategic partners, and is expected to be the first of many.
IGPI is now taking orders for the MYT-6 Genset from its website with delivery within one year. This presently proprietary (awaiting full patent protection) genset comes with a five year or 5,000 hour warranty. It is typical in the energy industry to pre-pay in full up front for a device that has a many month lead time.
Recently we reported that the leading automobile company in Russia, is nearly to market with a hybrid vehicle,
Yo-Mobile, that uses a rotary vane engine design that is very similar to Raphial Morgado's MYT engine; but they have not properly given him credit or licensed his technology. Several people commented to the effect that "at least finally the technology is going to market."
At long last, this remarkable technology can be purchased legitimately in the United States.
The MYT-6 genset is expected to be much smaller than its competitors, consuming far less fuel, with much lower emissions, and longer life because it has fewer moving parts, and the biodiesel fuel helps keep the engine lubricated. The noise volume is expected to be comparable to a typical law mower.
At an estimated 500 lbs (most of which is the alternator and frame, as the engine itself will weigh only 26 lbs), the MYT-6 genset is much lighter than the 3,000 lb weight that is typical of a conventional 40 kW genset. The unit will be about 3 feet long, 2 feet high, and 30 inches wide; compared to the conventional genset which is typically 5-6 feet long, 3-4 feet high, and 36-42 inches wide. A variant design of the MYT-6 genset, using a lighter (but more expensive) alternator, could weigh in at 200 lbs, which could be carried by two soldiers. No wonder the military is expected to be an early customer.
40 kW is around 55 horsepower (comparable to a V6 engine), but that is its rating at one given rpm (e.g. 1600 rpm). The engine can operate from between 40 rpm and 15,000 rpm. With the continuous output scenario, the genset will be air cooled, as it produces relatively little heat.
To give you an idea of how much power this is, a 40 kW genset with synchronous alternator (doesn't require inverter) running continuously produces 28.8 megawatt-hours per month. With the average household use of 920 kW-h per month in the U.S.
(link), one 40 kW genset could power around 30 households (assuming a storage capacity and no losses in storage).
The main drawback is the initial price. Prior to mass production, these first genset units are being sold for $150,000. However, bear in mind that high-performance engines, which the MYT-6 is, sell for between $75,000 and $150,000 for comparable output. IGPI CEO, John Leip states: It is not unusual to have to pay more for advanced technology at first. MYT inventor, Raphial Morgado said: There is nothing like this technology available today.
A conventional 40 kW genset might burn through 3 to 5 gallons of fuel per hour. In a continuous-running scenario, that would come to around 100 gallons of fuel per day. At the present price of around $4/gallon in the US
(link), that's $400/day in fuel. If the MYT-6 genset uses just half the fuel (it will probably do better than that), this results in a $200/day savings; so just from fuel savings along, the genset return on investment would be 750 days just over two years. Add to that the benefits of reduced emissions, and thus reduced potential penalties for pollution.
Speaking of fuel, part of IGPIs agreement with Titan includes specifies that the purchase of the MYT-6 genset comes with a 55 gallon drum of 100% biofuel refined by Titan. The customer will be able to purchase fuel through Titan at a rate that is 10 cents cheaper than the heating oil cost at any given time, including the cost of delivery in the U.S. Presently, for example, the
heating oil index lists at $3.09/gallon, making the fuel a dollar cheaper than diesel fuel with the additional 10 cent discount. The MYT-6 genset will be optimized to run on Titan's fuel blend, and running it on any other fuel will void the IGPI warranty. Disconnecting the MYT-6 engine from the genset will also void the warranty, such as to fit it onto a vehicle, a plane, or other applications.
The 100% Titan biodiesel blend is environmentally benign, with no harmful emissions or toxins, so shipping it will not pose the same kind of obstacles as typical diesel. It will not explode or ignite except under the engine type of conditions (pressure), so it is safe that way as well in terms of storage in fuel tanks and collisions scenarios.
In addition to the MYT-6 contract, IGPI is hoping to also contract for the 14-inch engine, which could be ganged together in a likely set of six to power a 2 MW genset for substations, to decentralize power generation.
While the data that has been collected from the 14-inch MYT engine tests have instilled confidence, Leip, said that ultimately his confidence came "from God. No man could have put this [team] together." He sees it as "nothing but a miracle" how things have fallen into place.

Morgado that cover land, sea and air. Morgado has accumulated a pool of advanced technologies during the last 25 years and expects to greatly improve the way we live and travel with revolutionary yet environmentally friendly technologies. The inventions include the revolutionary internal combustion engine called the MYT engine.
About Industrial Green Power Inc (IGPI)
IGPI was incorporated in December of 2006 for the purpose of placing 2 MW gensets at substations in Upstate New York. Ultimately, the mission of Industrial Green Power
(IGP) is too meet the practical needs of people worldwide. Their present goal is to free people from reliance on the national grid. "By offering gensets that are powered by the World's most revolutionary engine and fueled by a renewable resource that we can grow, our dependence on fossil fuels is reduced."
About Titan Biofuels
Titan Biofuels of Texas is a start-up company focused on delivering biofuels to the fuel infrastructure. Titan Express, Inc. plans to bring biodiesel to the retail market mostly through the purchase of existing larger truck stops and fuel oil companies with an existing account base. Titan
Biofuels, Inc. will operate fuel terminals, distribute biodiesel and produce Renewable Diesel.
After engineering and building its first industrial scale biodiesel plant, focus was turned towards developing a 3rd generation in-house technology. Titan developed and built a crossover biodiesel production system that can be used to convert crude or high FFA and high water content feedstocks into ASTM grade biodiesel or renewable diesel. This has shown great success. Cost to operate are 25% of that of using traditional chemistry. Their new system also circumvents all possible problems associated with production of biodiesel, such as: high FFA feedstocks, high water content feedstocks, fallout,
underprocessing, over processing, residual catalyst, under dried biodiesel. Their process also doesn't utilize any polymers, flammables or caustics. Based on their experience, they claim that their new patent pending, two-step, no wash process has the ability to produce some of the highest quality and consistent biodiesel on the market today
