Here is hope for pollution free car driving?

It also offers much cheaper fuel, and the hydrogen pellets work in
existing cars.

The UK takes the lead, and so far the EU is not involved.

There is also a nice picture of the new RV1 hydrogen bus.

British scientists 'invent artificial petrol' that could cost just 90p per
GALLON (and there's no carbon)

* Hydrogen-based fuel produces no greenhouse gases so could help nations
slash their carbon footprint

* It is due to be available at the pumps in three to five years

Petrol price relief? Stephen Voller, Chief Executive of Cella Energy said he
is confident the new fuel will work in existing cars

Artificial petrol that costs 19p per litre could be on forecourts in as
little as three years.

British scientists are refining the recipe for a hydrogen-based fuel that
will run in existing cars and engines at the fraction of the cost of
conventional petrol.

With hydrogen at its heart rather than carbon, it will not produce any
harmful emissions when burnt, making it better for the environment, as well
as easier on the wallet.

The first road tests are due next year and, if all goes well, the cut-price
`petrol' could be on sale in three to five years.

Professor Stephen Bennington, the project's lead scientist, said: `In some
senses, hydrogen is the perfect fuel. It has three times more energy than
petrol per unit of weight, and when it burns, it produces nothing but water.

`Our new hydrogen storage materials offer real potential for running cars,
planes and other vehicles that currently use hydrocarbons.'

The fuel is expected to cost around $1.50 a gallon, or 19p a litre. Even
with fuel taxes, the forecourt price is likely to be around 60p a litre -
less than half the current cost.

That would bring the price of filling a 70-litre Ford Mondeo down to around
42.

Energy from hydrogen can be harnessed by burning the gas or combining it
with oxygen in a fuel cell to produce electricity.

But current methods of storing hydrogen are expensive and not very safe.

How it works: Cella Energy is optimistic that drivers will not need to
modify their cars in order to use the fuel

To get round this, scientists from the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, near
Oxford, University College London and Oxford University have found a way of
densely packing hydrogen into tiny beads that can be poured or pumped like a
liquid.

Budget relief

* Three million drivers who use their car for work hit by 2,000-a-year
bill

Stephen Volker, of Cellar Energy, which is developing the technology, told
Gizmag: `We have developed micro-beads that can be used in an existing
gasoline or petrol vehicle to replace oil-based fuels.
Green energy: A hydrogen fuel bus in London. Unlike existing 'green' fuels
the new fuel under development will not require motorists to upgrade their
vehicles

'Early indications are that the micro-beads can be used in existing vehicles
without engine modification. The materials are hydrogen-based, and so when
used produce no carbon emissions at the point of use, in a similar way to
electric vehicles.'

A tankful of the artificial petrol, which has yet to be given a brand name,
is expected to last 300 to 400 miles, in line with conventional fuel.

But AA president Edmund King warned: `The fact the hydrogen is cheaper now
doesn't mean it always will be because the Government would soon get its
hands on it and increase the tax.'

-Yes Simon,
...Excellent, lots of folks 'out there' inventing environmental friendly/cost effective/energy machines/etc.
BUT, will they be 'dealt with' otherwise by TPTB? They bought off Tesla, they've Killed people with 'free Zero Point Energy inventions, etc. We'll have to wait, of course, to see if any of this reaches 'the people' instead of corporations and the 'Market Makers'.
Should follow up on this ALL you members, and give your own reflections/investigation. Thanks/'S'
