The first radio control car that runs with soda ring cans or aluminium waste

  “Aleix Llovet and Xavier Salueña, respectively student and professor at School of Industrial and Aeronautic Engineering of Terrassa (UPC-Barcelona Tech), have patented the dAlH2Orean, the first radio control car that runs with aluminium soda ring cans, or residual parts of aluminium mixed with hydroxide of sodium dissolved in water. The propulsion system is clean, it closes the cycle of aluminium and does not generate any CO2 emissions. The car, which reaches 30km/h, is the result of the final project of Alex Llovet, led by Professor Xavier Salueña.  In a scene from the movie 'Back to the Future', the mad professor Emmet L. Brown (Doc) opens a trash bin and picks some waste and finally a soda can into the mythical Dalorean's Mc Fusions reactor. With this fuel, the car starts and the main characters can jump throughout the time and travel to the future. Aleix Llovet and Xavier Salueña, student and teacher of the School of Industrial and Aeronautic Engineering of Terrassa (UPC-Barcelona Tech), have managed to create a clean and safe technology to operate a radio controlled car, much like the Marty and Doc in science fiction. The car, named dAlh2Orean in memory of the vehicle of the movie, does not allow time travel, but you can get a top speed of 30km per hour with a range per charge of 40 minutes.” Read more at http://www.upc.edu/saladepremsa/al-dia/mes-noticies/the-upc-barcelona-tech-presents-the-first-radio-control-car-that-runs-with-soda-ring-cans-or-aluminium-waste
