How amazing would it be for our generation to final move forward and away from our dependency on fossil fuel.
Cella Energy CEO Stephen Voller of prestigious Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford, claims that his company's hydrogen based fuel produces no carbon emissions when burned, and could be the first step toward a transportation market that's unaffected by unstable oil prices.
The results of Cella Energy's top secret project from the past four years: states that their synthetic fuel could cause gas prices to plunge to $1.50 per gallon.
Voller told Gizmag. "We have developed new micro-beads that can be used in an existing gasoline or petrol vehicle to replace oil-based fuels," "Early indications are that the micro-beads can be used in existing vehicles without engine modification."
Professor Stephen Bennington, lead scientist on the project for the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council. Said "the only way to pack it [hydrogen] into a vehicle is to use very high pressures or very low temperatures, both of which are expensive to do. Our new hydrogen storage materials offer real potential for running cars, planes and other vehicles that currently use hydrocarbons on hydrogen, with little extra cost and no extra inconvenience to the driver".
