Solar and Wind we hear about a lot as alternative energy sources. But not so often do we hear about Water Electrolysis, for an alternative fuel source, in cars we use every day.
Water Powered Car – It Doesn’t Matter If It’s From Your Tap, Bottled or Lake
A Japanese company called Genepax unveiled their water powered car in 2008 in Osaka, Japan. It doesn’t matter if it’s tap, bottled, or lake water, any type of water can make this car run.
An energy generator splits the water molecules to produce hydrogen and this is used to power the car. They use a membrane electrode assembly (MEA) to split the Hydrogen from the Oxygen through a chemical reaction. The cell needs only water and air, eliminating the need for a hydrogen reformer and high pressure hydrogen tank.
Water molecules are broken down into hydrogen and oxygen gas atoms in a capacities cell by a polarization and resonance process dependent upon the dielectric properties of water and water molecules. The gas atoms are thereafter ionized or otherwise energized and thermally combusted to release a degree of energy greater than that of combustion of the gas in ambient air.
We need to put our development of Alternative, Environmentally, Sustainable, Energy Sources, Like Wind, Solar, and Water Electrolysis, into high gear so we can claim our independence away from fossil fuels as other countries are doing.
