In Nicéphore Niépce and his brother probably created the world’s internal combustion engine they called a Pyréolophore, but chose to install it in a boat on the Saone in France.

The Pyréolophore was fuelled by a mixture of powder (dried spores of the plant), finely crushed dust and resin that mixed with oil, de Rivaz used a mixture of and oxygen.
