Demonstration of water-powered car
The Pakistani engineer who last week debuted a new technology purportedly enabling cars to run on water has accepted an invitation to visit Abu Dhabi, the Pakistani ambassador’s office .
The visit will take place in recognition of Waqar Ahmad’s invention of the “water fuel kit”, which he demonstrated to a gathering of Pakistani parliamentarians, scientists and students in Islamabad on July 26.
“The invention by the Pakistani engineer holds enormous potential considering that, if it is also certified by the IRENA after the upcoming demo, it can dramatically change the global dependence on fossil fuels, which also pollute the environment,” said Ambassador Khan. The ambassador expressed hope that the IRENA’s certification of the water fuel kit will help market the eco-friendly technology to a global consumer base.
Ahmad’s invention has been described as a “water fuelling system” and claims to power vehicles with hydrogen gas produced from “hydrogen bonding” with distilled water. According to reports in Pakistani newspaper Dawn, running a car on the water fuel kit technology will be cheaper than the use of petrol or compressed natural gas (CNG).
Dawn also reported that Pakistan’s Minister of Religious Affairs Syed Khurshid Ahmad Shah attended the demonstration in Islamabad and himself drove the water fuel kit-equipped car. The minister assured Ahmad of the government’s support in protecting and developing the project.
