    Capstone Micro Turbine,

    Capstone Micro Turbine, Chatsworth, CA and a bus company DesignLine Int'l, Charlotte, NC are selling Hybrid Transit Buses internationally. The buses are powered with 630 lithium ion batteries and a 35KW Micro Turbine. Capstone builds its turbines using air bearing technology, requiring only an air filter change every 5000 hours, no lubricants and burns multiple fuel types. A prototype of a sedan Ford S-Type has been re-engineered in England using turbine/battery hybrid technology and is being looked at by the US Auto manufacturers currently. Both companies have more info available on their Web Sites. Tests show positive results so far in multiple international metro sites.
