The main threat to this modern world apart from the growing population is the fast depleting exhaustible natural resources. To be ranked as the prime most concern to the modern man is the fossil fuel or the crude petroleum, the main source for driving any kind of automobiles plying on the road. As necessity is the mother of invention scientists have started looking for alternative sources of energy. In this line the Massachusetts Institute of Technology students have taken a step further.

They have developed an indigenous process or technique which makes electrically run cars recharge as quickly and as easily as a car that runs on petrol or diesel. Christened as the Cambridge Crude, this liquid fuel can extracted be from and replaced in the battery pack in the matter of a short span of time.

The system works like this. Unlike the typical nickel or lithium based batteries this new EV battery has storage of electron within flow cells which are semi solid. Suspended in electrolyte solution these particles bearing charge are transported between chambers which stores and releases energy simultaneously. This technology makes these batteries more efficient about ten times more than their traditional counter parts. It is better still since it comes with an additional benefit of cheaper production cost and thus more affordability. The new batteries are more compact in type, about fifty percent smaller than its counterparts.

It is however accepted that the new technology will come with some practical hurdles when put to the vigorous on-road test. This drawback however is well mitigated by loads of advantages that the EV batteries come with. A fully operable model of such a battery is expected to be functional within one and half years.

We all hope that these EV batteries will come with a lasting solution to the petroleum crisis and will serve as an elixir to automobiles when the world will be without fuel in the near future.
