Govt assures support for ‘water for fuel’ project

Water fuelling system to be patented and fully developed.

ISLAMABAD:


A sub-committee of the Cabinet on Thursday reiterated the government’s commitment to support the water fuel kit project to tackle energy crisis in the country.


The committee strongly encouraged the project, as the project designer presented a practical demonstration of a car operating on a water fuelling system. The committee members appreciated the idea of an engineer Waqar Ahmad in introducing the water fuel system for automobiles.

Minister for Religious Affairs Syed Khurshid Ahmad Shah, talking to the media after witnessing the demonstration, assured that the government would provide support to the Ministry of Science and Technology for development of the system. He asked the ministry and the Pakistan Engineering Council to float the feasibility of the project as soon as possible. The system enables the automobiles to consume water to function instead of combusting petrol or compressed natural gas (CNG).

Replying to a question, the minister maintained that the engineer will be provided full security and the idea will be patented to ensure security. The minister said that the Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf and Finance Minister Abdul Hafeez Shaikh considered the project to be of great value for the crisis-hit country.

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Mir Changez Khan Jamali, also present on the occasion said that the idea could be a tremendous step in drafting a counterstrategy for the prevailing energy crisis. “We are making an effort to complete all the remaining work by August 14 as we want to gift this project to the nation on the Pakistan Day,” he said adding that in the next two weeks all ground tests and attached experiments will be completed.

It is interesting to note that the water fuelling system is simple in its technical nature in which the `hydrogen bonding’ present in distilled water will be an acting agent and the hydrogen gas propels the engine. Moreover, the whole system will considerably be cheaper than that of the present fuelling systems of CNG and petroleum. Pakistan may be able to export the system if the country is able to spend enough capital to perfect the technology.

i am not a science student but can simply tell from common sense that this kind of projects are also presented by people all over the world also in paksitan but nobody takes any interest before. but this time our political elite and scientists have gone to the limits.we see and listen also that hakeem invented the cure of diabetese and other all dangerius diseases?where we r living?if this one possible then y american and other nations are investing billions of dollars on the research and still they r working.this Water kit oh my God what happens to our people.how they even believe. God gave this nation a little sense.Y we r ready to believe on the happenings of miracles.not believe on "ilm"(education/science). Umeed is good but this one is jihalat.
