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.
