The breaking news has received different reactions from local scientists. The Ho Chi Minh City High-tech Park, where Khe works, will organize a conference on March 9 to clarify questions from local scientists, assess the research, and reveal technical details of the machines. While revealing further information about the machines that have been sent to the international exhibition on renewable energy, the Tokyo Big Sight Harumi, Khe said briefly that hydrogen is split from water as a fuel for the machine by catalyst material before hydrogen is burned to generate energy. “The main fuel of the machine is water that is interacted with a catalyst, a kind of nanomaterial, through endogenous reactions to split out hydrogen before it is burned to generate energy to charge the battery of the machine,” Khe explained. “The nanomaterial is produced from rice, flour and other chemicals. “This process requires no exterior source of energy because nano technology has huge endogenous energy. “Besides water and the catalyst, the machine is equipped with a battery that is produced by ourselves from cheap materials that are totally friendly with the environment,” he added. One of the machines has a 2,000W capacity, which is enough to provide electricity to a household, Khe added. Many international and domestic firms have contacted him to order the machines.
