Report: British Engineer Deveops Scrap Aluminum Powered Fuel Cell for Autos

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for posting this link to an article from the Daily Mail about a British engineer named Trevor Jackson who has signed a deal with a company called Austin Electric to start making fuel cells which run from scrap aluminum.

From the article:

Jackson gave me a demonstration. He cut off the top of a can of Coke, drained it, filled it with the electrolyte, and clipped electrodes to it, powering a small propeller. ‘The energy in this will keep the propeller spinning for a month,’ he said. ‘You can see what this technology could do in a vehicle if you scale it up.’ Following last week’s deal with Austin, that is exactly what is about to happen. Three immediate projects are about to go into production.
