Lumenium LLC is reinventing internal combustion for a vital new era of engine power.
Our IDAR Engine announces a creative rebirth for one of mankind’s most brilliant inventions -- now well over a century old, however, and showing its age.
Our unique engine designs (proprietary and multi-patented) are derived with advanced mathematics and complex geometry, but based on elemental shapes and the simple dynamic interaction of concave and convex parts.
The result is an efficient and compact alternative to piston engines that is cleaner and more powerful, yet meaningfully less expensive.
Lumenium’s core technology frees engine design from the size, weight and cost limitations of traditional internal combustion. It does so by eliminating half the parts count of a conventional reciprocating engine (all the most complex and expensive components), and implementing instead a truly novel, alternative, four-stroke rotational engine cycle.
We developed IDAR technology over the course of ten years, creating and testing multiple generations of working engine variants, running on multiple fuels.
In addition to our considerable internal resources, we are supported by some of the world’s most innovative combustion scientists, engineers and designers… at eminent universities, well-known research institutes, and a National Laboratory.
Lumenium – a privately held company entirely devoted to developing advanced internal combustion engine technology -- designs, fabricates and tests IDAR engines at its facilities in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Our integrated team is now working with early-stage customers to develop power solutions to problems not addressable by today's engines. These new embodiments – including heavy fuel variants -- will enable crucial decades of clean, powerful, and efficient internal combustion, including creative interaction with renewable energy technologies.
Lumenium’s IDAR Engine… at the heart of our energy future.
