Israel-based startup Engineuity announced today a new hydrogen fuel technology that avoids problems of fuel distribution and storage by generating hydrogen onboard the vehicle, as it's needed.

The Engineuity system combines water and a light metal wire (such as aluminum or magnesium) in a conversion unit to produce hydrogen and steam. The pressurized hot gas mixture is fed to a modified internal combustion engine. The only byproduct is a light metal oxide that can be recycled.

In addition to water, the vehicle has to carry a quantity of the metal wire consumed in the process.
