Nanoflowcell, a car that runs off of salt water has been sanctioned for testing on German roads!
This car has been in progress for 14 years, and showcased in the Geneva Motor show in 2009 but never made it to the market.The four-seated car is approximately 5.25 metres in length and holds a completely new type of energy storage system the makers called “Nanoflowcell”.
The corporation claims that the car is proficient of speeds of 350 kilometres per hour and acceleration of 0-100 kilometres per hour in mere 2.8 seconds. It is capable to travel distances of 600 kilometres with a full tank of fuel made from a salt water solution.
An electrochemical reaction is carried out by uniting two liquids with metallic salts acting as the electrolyte. These solutions are driven through a fuel cell where an anode or cathode electrode is situated, producing electricity that is then dispatched to super capacitors inside the car.
Compared to conventional technologies, one litre of the salty liquid holds 400 times more energy than a usual lead-acid battery, and the model car has two 200-litre tanks on board.
According to Nanoflowcell’s development team, they desire to further advance the technology, and issue four more prototypes during 2014. It’s time we demand that all our cars run off of safe, sustainable products. It’s being proven that this is much more than just a possibility.
