Iran 1st Water-Fuelled System for Car Engines to be Commercialized

The 1st Iranian water-fuelled engine will be commercialized by the next six months.

According to an ISCA report, the 1st Iranian water-fuelled system for car engines will be commercialized by the next six months.

Jasmei Zargani, the inventor, said that he has already obtained some licenses from related ministries and some others are to be obtained, also received European standards for the engine, however, national standards should be obtained.

As he explained, there are hydrogen fuel cars in other countries, however, it is not imported to Iran yet. The hydrogen fuel cars increase fuel efficiency nationwide and also enhance air quality, the water-fuelled engine system can be installed in all the cars and there is no need for any change in the cars.

On November 27, 2016, Jasemi Zargani unveiled his modified vehicle, a car that can be supposedly powered by using potassium hydroxide and distilled water, Financial Tribune reported.

The locally produced Peugeot 405 usually runs on Compressed Natural Gas and gasoline. He said that a liter (0.26 gallons) of water can reportedly generate some 96 megajoules of energy while a liter of gasoline produces only 29 MJ of energy. A car run by this modified engine could run on 60 liters of water and able to travel up to 900 km.

According to scientificamerican.com, researchers today put more focus on using hydrogen to power fuel cells, which can replace internal combustion engines to power cars and emit only water from the tailpipe. And though hydrogen is combustible and can power an internal combustion engine, to use hydrogen in that way would squander its best potential: to power a fuel cell.

Hydrogen fuel cell cars are gaining traction, but commercialization of hydrogen fuel has not yet been accomplished. The electrolysis process could be viable in saving energy if a renewable, non-polluting energy source such as solar or wind could be harnessed to power it, although capturing enough of that energy source on board the car would be another hurdle.
