Sorry sulleny but have you actually read the Q&A with Phil Jones or did you read an abbreviated version which distorted what he said (e.g. Daily Mail)?

It's not about the mass, it's about the number of particles. Obviously smaller particles are even worse for your lungs.
@GreenPlease The theoretical maximum for an otto-cycle engine with a compression ratio of 10:1 is round about 60%.
@Patrick "Ideal perfect maximum"? Way higher. This sounds quite similar to the microwave ignition currently developed by MWI ( There was an article about it in the March issue of MTZ.
"Hydrogen is also 'emission-free' as a combustable fuel in a hybrid drive train" No, not only do you have NOx-Emissions from the combustion, you also have emissions from the oil/lubrication.
This does exactly the same as the VCR system by FEV. Basically it is the same.
Besides the usual thermal problems, did they even think about free inertia forces and free moments of inertia? Looks like a pain in the a...
