Japanese Water-powered Car from GenePax, Bob Boyce weighs in

On how H2O is separated into Hydrogen, then "electrons are removed", providing the electricity, the electrons cycled through the system to another membrane to re-combine with the two Hydrogen and a source of oxygen, thus making H2O again. so H2O -> H2 (O goes out) -membrane> Hydrogen and Electrons are separated (H+, E-), -> Electrons pass through electric system -> H+ Hydrogen passes through the next membrane and the next membrane, to be recombined with Oxygen and the E- Electrons to produce water back again.

Jun. 13 - Japanese company Genepax presents its eco-friendly car that runs on nothing but water.

The car has an energy generator that extracts hydrogen from water that is poured into the car's tank. The generator then releases electrons that produce electric power to run the car. Genepax, the company that invented the technology, aims to collaborate with Japanese manufacturers to mass produce it.

From Bob Boyce

"It really doesn't matter... The technology uses an expensive catalyst membrane that wears out and must be replaced periodically. So it is just another proprietary water breaking catalyst technology to get peoples hopes up, while lining the pockets of some corporation from allthe government funding that will be poured upon them.

From Slashdot random selection:
"They use a chemical reaction to crack the water, and then use the hydrogen from the water and oxygen from the air to run a fuel cell. The real questions are: What is in these membranes? How long do they last? What does it cost to renew the membranes?"
