TECHNOLOGY - 1. This is the replacement technology for the internal combustion engine.
· 1 gram of thorium is equal to about 7350 gallons of gas!
· Small, light weight, powerful and emissions free
· Cheap to build, easy to maintain
The element Thorium classified as an element in the Actinide series as one of the "Rare Earth Elements" can be located in Group 3, 7th periods of the Periodic Table.
Laser Power System is developing a totally green ZERO EMISSIONS system. A car power by a Thorium fueled MaxFelaser driving a closed loop steam turbine /high speed Induction Generator developed for the U.S. Air Force. The combination of the MaxFeLaser and induction generator technology provides a compact, efficient system for stable and safe operation, the package is small enough to go under the hood of any car.
It's uncanny that Cadillac division of GM had the same concept for a car but lacked the real world technology to build it. The LPS / WTF car is meant to last for a century. The name of the 90th element - thorium - in the title of the design proposal is no coincident.
The World Thorium Concept Car is a not far-fetched, but a real concept that could go into production is less that 2 years for the Auto Company that is will to us it.
