Frustrated with your monthly fuel bills and seeking for an alternative? Here is a solution for this problem!
Use water instead of fuel to drive your cars. What can be cheaper than this? We can run our cars with pure water ie. H2O and stop using fuel as the price is being hiked to the sky.
Hydrogen to run cars is produced by reacting boron with water . The gas produced from this reaction can power an internal combustion engine. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and it has the highest energy content per unit of weight of any known fuel.
How safe is our globe by using water as fuel? Hydrogen when burnt produces only heat, water and oxides of nitrogen, thus emissions are nearly zero when compared to fossil fuels. This will reverse the green house effect and bring an end to global warming because there is no carbondioxide produced during this combustion process.
Tata has funded Prof Daniel Nocera a researcher from MIT with $15 million to come up with water powered cars. Ratan Tata the man who brought out the Rs 1 lakh car now to think of the cheapest alternative -water as fuel. A new project he has invested in of making a car being fueled with water.
You would have heard about solar cars driven with solar energy. Storing the energy for use when the sun is not shinning and using it to drive cars as well for lighting at home. A huge hurdle to this solar cars came when Nocera and his project partner Mathew Kanan, a post doctorial made a path breaking discovery. Inspired by the process of photosynthesis, they both developed a process that used solar energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gases which when recombined into a cell would create carbon free electricity which can light your house and fuel your car for the whole day.
Tata Motors joined hands with ISRO to bring out an environment friendly , hydrogen driven car in 2007. Former ISRO chairman Madhavan Nair announced that the car would be out in 2008, but it didnt happen. Now following Nocera and Kanan’s discovery , hope that Tata’s dream would come true.
