PEM Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
A number of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers have commenced making Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV’s) in recent years. These vehicles have PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cells which are fueled by hydrogen gas carried on board in high pressure gas tanks. The fuel cells provide a very efficient conversion of the energy contained in the hydrogen fuel, into electricity to propel the vehicle. This conversion efficiency is much higher than that achieved using the hydrogen fuel in an internal combustion engine and it is therefore likely that the FCEV’s will be the carbon free way forward rather than hydrogen fueled combustion engines. The leading manufacturers of FCEV’s are:
– Toyota with their Mirai
– Hyundai with their Nexo
These FCEV’s have high pressure 700 bar hydrogen gas tanks on board to achieve a reasonable energy density. The vehicles can be re fueled…

The QUANT: A Fast Electric car that really Works on a Saltwater solution, and a Battery that never Wears Out.

The Free

Sounds too good to be true, but this car exists already with limited public sales beginning this year (2016). It first came out as the super expensive Quant e-Sportlimosine  prototype and now the Quantino family saloon (see QUANTINO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5Ic8XI3GlM) . The advantage, for you and the planet,  is you need no oil or electricity, just fill up with 2 ‘cheap salty solutions’. The QUANT is projected to finally cost similar to other electric cars

The Quantino runs on a 'cheap totally non toxic salty solution'.. no burn involved, infinite battery life. In principle you don't even need special filling stations for non toxic fuel. Of course you still have the climate and environment damage from vehicle construction.

How to DUMP Fossil Fuels… Alex Lightman.. CO2-free fuel

The Free

At last a major ‘tech guru’ is in favour of green-NH3, the non-fossil aand CO2-free fuel that has always existed, suppressed by the fossil fuel industry. (See Ted Talk below). We’ve been saying it for years with zero impact. all combustion motors can be run on green NH3, cutting climate destroying gases by 30% and abolishing air pollution, saving millions from an agonizing death.

Ammonia Energy System

Alex Lightman has challenged the oil giants, with

Its a huge advance for green-NH3 (ie.  ammonia from renewables) and comes hard on the heels of Toyota’s CO2-free ammonia prototype sportscar..  and the proposal to convert part…
