Water to fuel a car? Interesting video. I found this article on that, "Typical fuel cell vehicles take in hydrogen and emit water, but Genepax’s car generates electricity by breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen. The company says that this is made possible by a technology called ‘membrane electrode assembly (or MEA), which contains a material that is capable of breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen through a chemical reaction."

I had not heard of this. If mass marketed, it could cut 40% of the petroleum market used for transportation, right?

Is this Sea Water on the market?
