After many years of research, the Nicéphore Niépce House and its team have officially proven that the invention of Nicéphore Niépce, named the Pyréolophore, is the first internal combustion engine in the world.
This research was validated by the Academy of Sciences in 2015 and is the subject of a book: Niépce, Another revolution in the shadow of the great Carnot – Essay of a reasoned bibliography of the first internal combustion engine (1806). The Pyréolophore, written by Manuel Bonnet, Jean-Louis Bruley, Olivier Pironneau (introduction), and published in 2015 by the Université pour Tous de Bourgogne Centre de Chalon-sur-Saône.
After proving that the inventor of photography was Nicéphore Niépce and not Louis Daguerre, Spéos and Maison Niépce prove today that the first internal combustion engine in the world is a French invention invented by Nicéphore Niépce and his brother Claude.
