In Pakistan as everybody in the world knows country witnesses its worst energy crisis, a 37-year-old self-taught mechanical engineer from Swat claims to have a solution. A SWAT boy, After 20 years of research, , Rehan Aziz Farooqi, has invented a unique power generator that runs solely on water, the design of the generator can be used to allow any engine that runs on petrol, diesel or green gas to use water as fuel. By using this, Pakistan’s current electricity crisis can be resolved in three years time.
He explained the working of this generator that he built from scratch, is first filled into a unit where it is split into hydrogen and oxygen gases through the process of electrolysis. The hydrogen gas is channeled to a reservoir, and then to an engine to be used as fuel to generate electricity.
He exclaimed, “As water is abundantly available, electricity generated using this process will in fact be free of cost”
He claims to have spent more than Rs 2-million on his project and now he is requiring government’s permission and support to help him to launch the product in the market. He has also asked the government to help him set up a research centre to find further applications for his invention.
He said, “I have designed a method to power hydro turbines using this technology, which can go a long way in overcoming the electricity crisis within a few years,”
He also claimed to have drafted a method to generate electricity using the earth’s radiation. Farooq said he does not want to hurry into launching the water-powered generator before making sure that the technology is a 100 per cent safe. Hydrogen is the lightest and most explosive gas, explained Farooq, and warned that even technical experts should proceed with caution if they are attempting to produce it in labs or their homes
