Fossil fuels Add pollution to THE atmosphere, are limited, non-renewable and take hundreds of years to form which involves various geophysical processes. If they remain untapped, then they can provide a much-needed lubrication to tectonic plates which can abate an earthquake too.
To combat the issue of pollution, to avoid rapid depletion of the limited resource and to provide something ‘Green’ to our air, a mechanic from Madhya Pradesh has invented a car that runs on a fuel which is both eco-friendly and cheap.
There is always a need for a substitute of Petrol, diesel, and other fossil fuels. In this need of the hour, Raees Markani, 44, finally came up with this eco-friendly car that runs on a fuel as cheap as Rs 210 to 20 per litre.
Though the vehicle looks just like an another car, a closer look reveals details of the technology used to create it.
The car runs by acetylene gas formed by a chemical reaction between calcium carbide and water. The gas has also a wide usage in several industrial purposes including welding and portable lighting for miners. Markani said that the invention would make common people breathe with ease as this will forbid them to pay for fuels pricing as much as Rs.70/litre helping them keep their pockets heavy and journey light and stress-free.
For instance, Markani has also filed for a patent for his innovation after refusing a Chinese firm, which was interested in using his innovation, asking the investors to set up the plant in his hometown. This invention comes at a time when automobile companies are seeking for a cleaner, more eco-friendly fuel in their cars.
Though there is a dearth of buyers who ask for eco-friendly cars (reasons ranging from the unavailability of green fuel at every nook and corner to yet, not in fashion), the demand for them is increasing gradually and the manufacturers definitely have to keep up this in their foresight.
So, with this innovation coming at a time when it’s needed the most, Raees has all the opportunities to explore his invention in all possible directions.
