These Cars Are Not Use Fossil-fuel

The high price of crude oil into a large and crucial issues that must be immediately found a solution. Automotive industry, including researchers working to find a solution by performing a variety of research and development of motor vehicle products are no longer fixated on petroleum consumption again. 

Various elements in nature that easily updated even used as an energy source to drive the car. So far there are a number of creative invention that can be used as the driving force of a motor vehicle. In fact, among which are widely marketed in several countries. Here are five cars to drive non-petroleum energy sources that have been researched by manufacturers and researchers are: 

1. Genepax Water 
Genepax, Japanese companies developing electric cars that use water as a source of energy. In one trial conducted in Osaka Japan, water is poured in a large tube that is placed in the trunk of small-sized electric car. The result is a car can move. 

Genepax itself is the inventor of a system that can generate heat and electricity from pure water. The technology uses a system called the membrane electrode assembly (MEA), which extracts hydrogen from water more effectively.

Hydrogen is utilized to generate 120 watts of electrical energy and drive the car that made the company Takeoka Mini Car Products Co. Ltd.

2. Mini CAT 
One car is the result of cooperation automotive company from India, Tata Motors with MDI from France.

Mini CAT utilize compressed air pressure to move the machine. The use of compressed air that does not require spark plugs and cooling systems, thereby reducing production costs and vehicle maintenance.

Tata Motors plans to market this car in 2012 at a price of about 12.750 U.S. dollars. 

Wind entered into a special tank at the Mini CAT in two ways namely through a special charging station or generator that is in the car.

Tata claims an air tank only costs two dollars to fill it out and can be used to travel 300 km. CAT Mini can go a maximum speed of 105 km/h. 

3. Hy-Alpha 
The unceasing development and production electric cars cause benefit of hydrogen as an alternative fuel is also expanding. An Indian company, Mahindra & Mahindra that makes the three-wheeled vehicles called Hy-Alpha who claimed to be the first in the world. 

For the development of Mahindra & Mahindra products get U.S $ 1 million funding from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization International Centre for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (UNIDO-ICHET) based in Istanbul, Turkey

Moreover, cooperation is also carried out by Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi. Special preparation of the infrastructure has the support of Air Products Incorporated, a U.S. company based in Delhi.

DelHy 3-W converter is specially equipped for the gasoline engine can consume hydrogen. 

4. Rover SD1 
Not only water or hydrogen that can be utilized for energy sources. A group of researchers in Britain have conducted a study of fuel from coffee grounds. The result is a modified Rover SD1, an old car is capable of driving up to speeds of 107 km/h or the fastest car in the world for organic waste-powered motor vehicles.

Rover SD1 tested by traveling from London to Manchester in the last year and recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the first waste-powered car ever to travel far. Coffee grounds into the energy conversion is done through a process called gasifier and produce gas, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen (read more.)

5. Saab 9-5 BioPower 
Saab 9-5 BioPower is the pioneer of premium cars in the world to get the best innovation award in 2006 by the Professional Journalists of the Automobile Press.

Advantages of this environmentally friendly car is consuming energy and ethanol and has performance equivalent to gasoline-fueled vehicles. 

In some European countries, like Sweden, ethanol sold in the form of a mixture of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline or E85. Saab 9-5 BioPower 180 bhp and powerful torque of 280 Nm or more powerful than similar cars that use gasoline that is 150 bhp and 240 Nm.

That is why Saab 9-5 BioPower can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 8.5 seconds, while the petrol version is 9.8 seconds. *** [OVI | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 30032012]
