UK Company Develops $1.50 Gallon Synthetic Gas

A UK based energy laboratory has developed a new hydrogen based synthetic gasoline that could cost consumers just $1.50 a gallon to purchase and that works in normal gasoline engines and produces zero emissions when burnt. Using a new scientific advancement known as microbeading, Cella Energy has developed the new gasoline substitute that works in conventional existing engines, produces no pollution when burnt, and is far cheaper than fossil fuel based gasoline. The small UK lab located near Oxford spent four years working on nanostructuring technology to create something known as coaxial overspraying where hydrogen microbeads are at the center of this new technology. And since hydrogen is abundant in water, as one example, this new fuel breakthrough can easily be created from water being split into hydrogen and oxygen. The new fuel is also safer to handle than normal gasoline as well, yet will combust in a normal manner in a conventional gasoline engine, giving the new fuel breakthrough so many advantages over normal gasoline.

    1) This is a couple of years old.

    2) It’s not really a gasoline substitute – you can’t just pump it into a normal car’s tank.

    3) It depends on really, really cheap (borderline free) hydrogen, which we do not currently have.

    The way it actually works is by creating a chemical matrix that hold hydrogen in tiny beads – which then has to be heated to somewhere around 150 degrees Celsius to make the hydrogen come out. Basically, the plan is that you would buy a tankful of the stuff (as microscopic beads that would be heated to extract the hydrogen in a separate chamber). Once the hydrogen was extracted, the used beads would be moved to a separate tank, which you would have to dump at the filling station when you got your next load of beads.

    It’s… well, it’s cumbersome, it’s complex, and the price structure is pretty much a fairy tale.
