Sandrine Ngalula Mubenga | Fuel Cell Innovator

From Timbuktu Chronicles Mon Dec 24 2012, 12:00:00

A Kumatoo profile of Sandrine Ngalula who has:

...succeeded in transforming an electric car prototype into a hybrid car by integrating a fuel cell.

A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts hydrogen into electricity. The car's main fuel becomes hydrogen which releases only water as waste. The idea of developing a car that runs on hydrogen is not new. But it may be that Sandrine Ngalula Mubenga has found the solution because, in addition to making the car hybrid, she has conceived a hydrogen station (as opposed to petrol stations). The hydrogen station she has developed is solar-powered. Its working principle is simple: splitting water (H2O) into hydrogen and oxygen and collecting the hydrogen in tanks (reservoirs). An American car manufacturer is apparently considering marketing the hybrid system developed by Sandrine Ngalula.
