Founder Profile

Founder Profile: Alexander Shkolnik, Co-Founder and CEO of Liquid Piston

In the military carrying fuel to the frontlines can be costly, and unfortunately deadly. For these reasons, finding a way to create a more efficient engine is of the utmost importance to the US government.


This is why Alex Shkolnik and his team at Liquid Piston have been working closely with the government to completely reimagine the diesel engine construct to produce an engine that is 30% more thermal efficient and 2X more fuel efficient to gasoline engines.


With a tremendous amount of R&D progress the team has come back for a second round of capital raising on Wefunder.
