The U.S. Army has Discovered a New Way of Generating Clean Energy

The U.S. Army found a new way of generating clean power.


While the U.S. Army prepares to counter any type of attack coming from North Korea that could target Guam or other U.S. territory, scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland have discovered an aluminum nanomaterial of their design that produces high amounts of energy when comes in contact with water or other liquid that contains water.

During a routine materials experimentation, a team of researchers at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, has observed a bubbling reaction when water was added to a nanomaterial produced by their team.

Scientists found that water splits apart when coming into contact with the aluminum nanomaterial that they produced.

The water is divided into hydrogen and oxygen very quickly, and the hydrogen generated this way can be used to power a fuel cell.

It is already known that hydrogen can be produced by adding a catalyst to aluminum such as: sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide or some acid.

A catalyst is a substance that is used to increase a chemical reaction rate.

The nanomaterial aluminum powder produced by the scientists has the potential to be 3-D printed, so the researchers have already envisioned air and ground robots that can use the material in the near future to generate energy very quickly.

This aluminum based nanomaterial produced by the U.S. Army achieves 100% efficiency in less than three minutes, which makes it unique in the world.

The laboratory is committed to giving the soldiers the advantage over the enemy, and with the new discovery, the scientists consider that the aluminum nanomaterial opens a new type of research and a new way of generating power on demand and at will.
