Kolkata couple invent fuel-less, battery-less auto engine. Interesting that the advances/new technology are able to gain support, instead of being bought out by a petrol car manufacturer and left idle on the bench.
Kolkata couple invent fuel-less, battery-less auto engine
KOLKATA: Kanishk Sinha, 30, and his wife Lipika, 25, chose to do something different from looking for jobs—they invented a fuel-less
environment-friendly auto engine.
"This engine is switched on by a chemical reaction between zinc and oxygen; hence it is pollution-free. This technology also increases the durability of the engine," Kanishk Sinha, chairman of the Jasper Motor Vehicle company, told reporters.
"A water pump can run for five years without any interruption on this engine and a four-wheeler car can run 450,000 km," said Sinha.
The young couple established the company registered in the US five years ago with Rs.1 billion (Rs.100 crore) raised from non-resident Indians. They got the engine patented with BigPatents India, a body supported by the Ford Foundation.
The couple has approached Kshiti Goswami, West Bengal's public works department minister, for land in Bardhaman district.
