Could this be the answer to charging electric cars?

I remember my science teacher telling us in the 60's that a car could already run on water,, and pigs will fly,,  :D

I will spare you the MP video of sheep,,,  :''

If this story is true, it will definitely be a game changer for electric vehicles.  :af

Well, they did say the Whisky industry up there was in decline................................

Are we going to get electric model flyers filling tanks using hand pumps just like glow and petrol?  ^-^

I'm more interested in the whole cycle costs, money and pollution.

How much energy spent in getting the metal oxide constructed and in the correct state?  Transportation?  Disposal arrangements (imagine every car on our roads doing this)?

We get all these wonder products waved at us but usually little or nothing about any assessment of the REAL costs.

Must say there is no comment on all that in the article.

It could be that the liquid is recharged on site.

A few years ago I read about a similar storage scheme on a remote island in the pacific, basically had two tanks, during the day the spent liquid was passed through a "recharging station" from a "spent" tank to a "full" tank using solar electric for the power, then at night it was transferred the other way releasing the charge. 

Did anybody also read the article where they have made concrete that acts like a battery (using phosphorus ions), low charge density, but your whole house would be able to store electricity.

The pace of technological development is quickening.

An example of a longer available wonder fuel and its issues:-

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pellet_fuel   Worth a full read.

The school I work at was new build. The old was piped gas. The new is wooden pellet.  SO, the additional lorry loads and even the lorry manufacture and other life cycle costs were as makes no difference all additional.  And yes, you often can smell burning wood! And most of the time the school is 25C plus, summer or winter. The windows only minimally open, and the ducted "fresh air" inlet system takes air from the hottest point on the roof.

If petrol stations are going to be new fuel recycling centres, there's an environmental impact in noise, fume emission, etc to be considered, too.
