Water Cars

Hello IGWers,

I have been reading an awful lot about hydrogen powered cars and the water that they will release as exhaust. I’m wondering though, what is going to happen to all that water? Will city streets flood? Will normal city streets feel the wrath of all of this water? Not sure what is going to happen, but it will be interesting either way.

To more clean cars.

  2. I think there are more difficult and limiting issues for hydrogen power compared to the level of H2O emissions. The cheapest method of generating Hydrogen is from natural gas and the process actually generates a lot of CO2. E ven if Hydrogen is generated by electrolysis the energy used could well be from fossil fuels. Add in the infrastructure issues and the difficulties of storing Hydrogen and it could be a while before you see a lot of Hydrogen cars

  3. The hydrogen car might not solve the problem of global warming but it certainly does reduce our dependence on oil, which can be considered our primary concern. I doubt there will be a single fuel which will replace petrol and diesel. We at Mahindra have come up with SUVs that run completely on bio diesel. What do you think about bio diesel’s future as a potential fuel?

  4. I think that biodiesel has tremendous potential for tomorrow’s energy needs. I think that biodiesel’s renewable nature will push it to the forefront of energy needs. The question still remains, how capable are we of retrofitting older cars for biodiesel?

  5. Well, then there was that little Japanese company featured on Reuters last week that has devised a way to generate the hydrogen on the fly from water, using a lot less energy to do so than was previously thought required.

    Obviously, we need to rethink methods of electrolysis.
