    That's what I've found looking for water engine information on the Internet. Is there anyone who would be smart enough to evaluate that and tell me what of it is malarkey and what of it is potentially true? I noticed they linked to the ‘Spirit of Ma'at’ site. From what I've known, that's a site of crackpots and religious fundamentalists.

    Any comments? Sorry if this is the wrong forum.


    Regards,

    From a brief glance it looks like its actually just running on Hydrogen.

    we know Hydrogen engines work. Rotaries are the most efficient design for Hydrogen engines... Tupolev has succesfully flown a Jet Aircraft (Passenger aircraft, roughly 100 seat capacity) powered by Hydrogen too.

    All this guy seems to be doing is using the water as a source of hydrogen.

    The first process shown to us by Rothman Technologies uses water, salt, and an extremely inexpensive metal alloy. The gas that results from this process is pure hydrogen, a fuel that burns without the need for external oxygen — and gives off no pollution whatsoever.
    If all he's doing is creating a Hydrogen engine, then he's about 20 years behind the Tupolev Hydrogen Jet which first flew in 1988.

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum.
    The correct forum for this would have been Pseudoscience.

    The amount of energy in the water molecule is thus vast, and has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of energy it takes to break down that molecule. This is an extremely important point, as so many people — even scientists — are unclear on this concept.
    Scientists are not unclear on this concept. It has everything to do with the amount of energy it takes to break down the molecule, because the energy it takes to break down the molecule is exactly the energy you will get back out by burning hydrogen.

    Hydrogen: This fuel is complete in itself. It does not need oxygen from the atmosphere to burn, which is an improvement over fossil fuels in saving the oxygen in our air supply. In fact, when hydrogen burns perfectly, nothing at all comes out of the tail pipe. If salt and metal alloy are used to create hydrogen, then there will be residues of that in the exhaust, but hydrogen fuel does not contribute oxygen to the atmosphere.
    This is nonsense. How do you burn hydrogen without oxygen?

    They admitted that the system was crude and would have to be improved.
    This is what the perpetual motion inventors always say.
