Japanese Water Powered Car!!

As per the claims it runs only on a 300W “Water Energy System (WES)” where WATER is the only FUEL.

The basic power generation mechanism of the new system is similar to that of a normal fuel cell, which uses hydrogen as a fuel. According to Genepax, the main feature of the new system is that it uses the company’s membrane electrode assembly (MEA), which contains a material capable of breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen through a chemical reaction.

A Japanese venture company, Genepax, has unveiled a car on that runs on water. All it requires is a litre of water. In fact, any kind of water to be exact, whether its river, rain, sea water, or even Japanese tea. Its an electric powered car that runs solely on hydrogen dioxide.

“The main characteristic of this car is that no external input is needed. The car will continue to run as long as you have a bottle of water inside for you to add from time to time,” said Kiyoshi Hirasawa, Chief Executive Officer of Genepax, after he proudly announced the company’s invention.

Once water is poured into the water tank at the back of the car, the newly invented energy generator takes out the hydrogen from the water, releases electrons and finally generates electrical power.

“We highly recommend our system since it does not require you to build up an infrastructure to recharge your batteries, which is usually the case for most electric cars,” said Hirasawa, who is hoping to advertise the car in time for the upcoming G8 Summit in Hokkaido, Japan.

According to the company, 1 liter of water keeps the car running for about an hour with a speed of 80 kilometers or 50 miles an hour. The company has applied for a patent and is hoping to collaborate with Japanese automobile manufacturers to mass manufacture their invention in the very near future. As fuel prices continue rising and people look for greener alternatives, companies globally are trying to come up with alternatives.

  2. Hmmm…
    I’m afraid I’m with Ed (wish I could believe in this stuff, tho!)

    It takes a lot of electricity and electrolyte to dissociate water into hydrogen & oxygen, hardly recouped in combustion.

    Water no doubt has immense stored energy, but burning it is not the best way– consider the difference between the output of burning hydrogen, and fusing it! One makes a small flame, the other the sun.

    But like the air powered car, or the magnetic perpetual motion motor, I’ll be the first to buy one when it becomes available! (still waiting on cold fusion… )

    So far the cheapest, cleanest energy vehicle is the bicycle– can’t wait to be proven wrong tho!

  12. At the very least we get to hear about these new
    technologies, but I think what Tree has said
    is quite true. I remember how the Secrecy Act was
    used to seize wireless technology patents (Tesla,
    Marconi ), which were subsequently handed over to a General Electric consortium controlled by J. P Morgan. Morgan’s strategies for obtaining control of technologies and industries, as well as how to protect their wealth, are similar to those used by most conglomerates. The only good news is that they are predictable. A vehicle that does not require petroleum is not going to happen until the alternative is “controlled”. The only fear for those seeking control is that we will discover how they are doing it – as in plant breeder patents & the “food crisis”. Same blueprint.

  13. I just hope this does push thru – we’ve seen or heard a lot of these hydrogen cars but they never do go mainstream. If this comes true, then this would definitely revise whom we call the “world powers”

  14. It is interesting that it will be the Japanese who are bringing it to market.
    A tremendous invention……in future…even a poor ppl can afford tto have car !!!!!!!!!!

  15. wow ! it may be really wonderfull…..if the dream comes true !!!!!!!!!! the world will be free from pollution ! hats off to the japanese technology………………

  16. This technology has been around for awhile but our govt has repressed any alternative to gas vehicles because “its a threat to national security” or shall they say the oil companies record profits. Anyone who tries to patent anything alternative is bought out or meets mysterious end… still clean technology will find a way as humanity sees this inevitable transition a must for the survival of all living things. This is a great post Lo- Thanks.
    It really is up to the people to have reason and humanity as our govt and many others have lost that good sense-
    kudos to Japan.

  17. Errm…as far as I am aware, the First Law of Thermodynamics (loosely speaking: “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch”) has not been repealed.

    Energy must be put in to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen. Where is that energy coming from? Reacting hydrogen and oxygen together forms water again – and cannot release more energy than was needed to split it in the first place.

    If they have a material that splits the water by chemical reaction, that material must get consumed in the process. For example one process might be to use aluminum – 2Al + 3H2O -> Al2O3 + 3H2 – to generate the hydrogen. But now you need energy to produce the aluminum in the first place and to recover it from the aluminum oxide by-product. Effectively what you have is a rechargeable aluminum battery.

  18. Whaaaaaat? FREE fuel? No hydrogen “filling station” infrastructure needs to be built?
    The oil barons aren’t going to like this one little bit.
