You can now get indoor power generation with no fumes and no emissions. Power Air Corp. of Livermore, CA, recently demonstrated a Zinc Air Fuel Cell (ZAFC) powered indoor generator. Power Air developed the generator with its Korean-based partner H-Plus Eco Ltd. The generator runs on zinc fuel, which is non-flammable and non-explosive. Since the unit produces no harmful emissions, it can run indoors without fear of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The generator will be marketed as backup power for apartments, homes and businesses during power outages. It will also be marketed as a source of emergency power for police, fire, homeland security and disaster recovery. “ZAFC-based generators have the potential to revolutionize the back-up power industry,” says Remy Kozak, president and CEO of Power Air.
Kozak will take the ZAFC generator on the road this spring and summer to demonstrate it at alternative energy conferences and trade shows.
