Nanoflowcell – Salt water-powered Quant e-Sportlimousine gets European approval

How often have we heard THAT in the last 10 years?

Well, a European company called Nanoflowcell has supposedly come up with an effective way to do just that.

It’s okay if you haven’t yet heard of the QUANT e-Sportlimousine. It was only announced as an exceedingly ambitious project earlier this year. When it was revealed, its claims of being a salt water-powered, 900 hp, 236 mph four-seater were so pie-in-the-sky that not a lot of people took them seriously.

Until now.

The so-called Nanoflowcell is one such prototype that has just leapt ahead of others in the sector by winning European approval for real world tests on Europe’s roads.

This company has actually convinced Germany to let them legally register the car in their country so it can be road tested. In knowing how the Germans embrace and refine technology it could mean a big difference to the world.

Ultimately, it’s an electric powered, high end luxury car. No hybrid, no fossil fuel, no emissions. On paper the company boasts this car to put out 900 HP from 4 electric motors driven by a “flow cell” battery. It’s also coated with a complete membrane of solar energy gathering cells and power regenerating brakes to help produce as much electricity as possible.

How does it supposedly work?

The flow cell system powering the Quant e-Sportlimousine’s four electric motors develops electricity from an electrochemical reaction created by two electrolyte solutions.

“Flow” battery technology has actually been around for a number of years. The biggest difference is that the electrolyte does not just sit in a container nibbling away at conductive plates like ants on a cracker…hence a regular car battery. There are typically two storage tanks, one with positively charged fluid and one with negatively charged fluid. Two pumps force the fluids through a divided chamber (kind of like a car battery that’s divided in half) and the reaction creates electric energy. The amount of power possible is directly related to the size of the tanks. Sounds like a simple concept until you get into the chemical concoctions.

This electricity is forwarded to super capacitors where its stored and distributed.

“We are delighted as pioneers to be able to present an automobile driven by flow cell technology on public roads, and one which achieves not only fantastic performance values but also zero emissions, a projected top speed of over 350 km/h (217.5 mph), acceleration from 0-100 in 2.8 seconds, a torque of four times 2,900 Nm (2,139 lb-ft) and a range of more than 600 km (373 mi).”

Beyond fancy super-cars, NanoFlowcell sees its technology taking on a variety of applications. Presumably it will work its way down to more affordable cars, but its perceived potential reaches far beyond the road’s edge.

“We’ve got major plans, and not just within the automobile industry,” says NanoFlowcell AG Chairman of the Board Prof. Jens-Peter Ellermann. “The potential of the NanoFlowcell is much greater, especially in terms of domestic energy supplies as well as in maritime, rail and aviation technology. The NanoFlowcell offers a wide range of applications as a sustainable, low cost and environmentally-friendly source of energy.”

We’ll wait to see the Quant e-Sportlimousine live up to its billing before we get too excited about that future expansion.
