This paper describes a method for converting car engine exhaust heat into useable electric energy that can be used either to improve fuel efficiency by as much as 10 percent, or for powering an air-cycle type Air Conditioning (A/C) system. The concept is based on designs that are currently used to construct air-cycle A/C systems.
