Electric Vehicles – Are They Truly A Green Alternative For A Healthy-Planet
In next 3 to 4 years, electric vehicles or EVs are claimed to replace the conventional petroleum/gasoline variants. The primary reason is to protect the environment against harmful emissions by the fuel combustion engines. Worldwide governments have, therefore, started implementing various environment protection policies, including promoting the usage of electric vehicles. Recently, Germany has announced to reduce the carbon emissions nearly by 40% by 2020 by bringing about 1 million electric cars on-road by that year. Global automobile giants, including Tesla Motors, are also aggressively overhauling their production hubs to produce more-of electric vehicles.
Though EVs are anticipated to help in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions, researchers are still reluctant to consider them to be a perfect answer for the ongoing environmental issues. EVs offer limited climate benefits, as they need electricity produced by burning fossil fuels. Because EVs include batteries, it requires more energy to manufacture an electric vehicle than a conventional automobile. Moreover, disposing of those batteries leads to the most likely environmental hazard.
According to a recent report by the Ricardo Consultancy, the estimated production of an average petrol car emits about 5.5 tons of CO2, while for producing an average electric car, the carbon-emission rate raises close to 9.0 tons. Batteries production alone emits nearly one-half of the carbon from EVs manufacturing. The report also projected that during its whole lifecycle, the electric car would emit about 80% carbon of the petrol car.
Electric vehicles were launched with a promise to protect the climate, however, considering the appalling research numbers, discussed here; EVs seem to lose their very purpose of saving the environment. Worldwide research individuals and engineers are, therefore, still working to devise more environmentally friendly alternatives.
Branded as Maynex – H2-Flex, this patented technology can run your car from water – as a pure fuel source. The H2-Flex converts water (even the muddiest of waste-water) into 100% clean hydrogen gas, through a chemical reaction with aluminum. This way, the H2-Flex assures a pure and healthy environment for the generations to come.
The best part is H2-Flex can also be used on hybrid vehicles as long as it has an internal combustion engine (ICE). With its advanced hydrogen battery system (“H2-Cell”), the H2-Flex can also be used on electric vehicles (EV) and fuel cell vehicles.
