I've found some good news for Rima
If any of you think that I tend towards the negative too much, then allow me too to highlight an Indonesian who has developed an outstanding invention, and selflessly refused to patent it. And Rima ought to know about him.
The Jakarta Post yesterday had a feature article
about Joko Sutrisno, one which I think they also ran last year. Whatever, he has put together a piece of equipment, an electrolyser that is installed in a motorbike or car and which utilises neutral (distilled?) or rainwater - H2
O. Using electrical currents, it is able to generate energy through explosions that can help the machine run and save in fuel consumption in the process."An engine makes a motorbike or car run through explosions," said the 52-year-old, a junior high school dropout. The explosive power of water is found in hydrogen. Joko said burning hydrogen was good and its octane rating reached 130. This compares with the rating of premium fuel, which is only in the 80s, and Pertamax, with a rating of 94.
He said the more efficient burning decreases carbon emissions. Oil use also becomes more economical. It is cleaner because it partly emits water in place of carbon.
Since he has no commercial interest, Joko said he did not want to patent his invention. He hopes people will make the device themselves since its construction is simple and the materials easy to find. He uses transparent soy sauce bottles because they are cheap, easy to find and safer.
He charges customers about $10.
In the good ol' US of A, you can pay c.$50 for a manual and about $60 for materials. Perhaps they don't have plastic soy sauce bottles there. Another company, Hydrorunner
says that electrolysis or splitting water as it is also known, has been around for over 50 years.
It is a simple science experiment conducted in any middle school.
In order to earn from this technology, Hydrorunner have made a significant scientific discovery not in the manufacture of hydrogen but in the control of it.
Apparently Joko dropped out of his junior high school, so his scientific background is somewhat limited in developing a pre-programmed computer that is specifically designed for any EFI internal combustion or diesel vehicle.
