MDI Sustainablity

Motor Development International

With the vision to make ecology assessable to all Motor Development International (MDI) has developed a disruptive clean high technology of engines running on compressed air, which caters for a wide variety of applications operable to sustain Mobility and Energy Storage Solutions.

The giant TATA Motors brought a license for MDI technology for India, and Veolia exclusivity for France for a garbage collector.


The MDI technology is rapidly gaining global recognition as a means to affordably speed up the process of climate change and in doing so improve and create great customer experiences. These are the goals.

MDI targets to implement its Compressed-air Energy Storage solutions first in Sub-Saharan Africa.

A lot of countries and their people are suffering from lack of electricity, for simple activities like pumping water, lighting houses, recharging mobiles, cooling products, powering their fishing boats. These lacks impede their access to knowledge, education, health, communication, and deprive the populations from access to modern tools to develop, and from dignity.These countries need affordable and durable solutions to solve a lot of their issues, which will allow people to stay home safely and live with dignity in their own countries, close to their family, supporting it and enjoying their life in their own environment and culture, and participating to the development of the country, for themselves and their children.

Manufacture of Carbon Fibre Cylinders

All carbon composite cylinders feature an aluminium liner, wrapped with carbon fibre with a fibreglass outer layer with a smooth resin finish. This makes the cylinders lightweight, easy to clean ad extremely resistant to shocks, chemicals and abrasion.

Advantages of MDI

  • COMPRESSED AIR TECHNOLOGY is one of the best possible solutions because its carbon footprint is optimal, its reservoir is chemically inert and its very reasonable cost makes it possible to optimise energy production resulting from sustainable development. 

  • MDI is not a producer of vehicles but sells its know-how, its licenses, as well as machine tools, configuring a “Turnkey” offer for investors. 

  • The MDI production method, as well as a reasoned weight of materials, contribute to producing an economically attractive and widely affordable vehicle. 

  • This economic benefit, as well as the engines low energy consumption, constitute major assets for MDI clean vehicles. 

  • The production processes of MDI constitute an economic break, because of the decentralisation of the assembly units, and localised production with up to 80% of the vehicle being made on site.
  • In parallel the industry is advancing deeper into renewable energy and electric vehicles, and thereby continually aware of the shortcomings of current storage and electric vehicles. 

  • There will be much competition among suppliers, but, at least in the short to medium term, much less competition among technologies. The dominant energy storage technology is chemical batteries, and these have big shortcomings ranging from cost to inconvenient charge depletion (e.g. on a trip) to unclean manufacture and disposal. Another technology factor is traditional heavy and costly car manufacture. 

    Today MDI products are advantageously differentiated and very competitive in both those areas. 

    Whilst there will be developments for all technologies, plus new ones, we see the opportunities for compressed air continuing and increasing.
