Title: Automotive wave of the future
Post by: DigitalBuddha on November 16, 2013, 01:41:44 AM
Thorium-Fueled Automobile Engine Needs Refueling Once a Century

There are now over one billion cars traveling roads around the world directly and indirectly costing trillions of dollars in material resources, time and noxious emissions. Imagine all these cars running cleanly for 100 years on just 8 grams of fuel each.

Laser Power Systems (LPS) from Connecticut, USA, is developing a new method of automotive propulsion with one of the most dense materials known in nature: thorium. Because thorium is so dense it has the potential to produce tremendous amounts of heat. The company has been experimenting with small bits of thorium, creating a laser that heats water, produces steam and powers a mini turbine.

Well, they finally did it - http://www.industrytap.com/thorium-fueled-automobile-engine-needs-refueling-once-a-century/15649 (http://www.industrytap.com/thorium-fueled-automobile-engine-needs-refueling-once-a-century/15649)
