Hydrogen Powered Cars Fueled by Light Metals
Engineuity has developed an alternative fuel source using light metals
such as aluminum or magnesium. The car runs with a "Metal-Steam
combustor" that heats the metal to very high temperatures with water,
which produces steam and hydrogen to power the engine.
The hydrogen is burned to power the car and when the
metal is burned it creates a solid metal oxide that can be recycled
into fuel again. With this concept, hydrogen is produced as needed and
immediately ignited to power the engine. The hydrogen doesn't need to
be stored on the vehicle, which is one of the biggest problems for
other hydrogen vehicle concepts.
