Victor G. Ayco, a scientist and inventor, sees the fuel crisis as an opportunity for the country to tap the inexhaustible potentials that science can offer in finding alternatives to fossil fuel.
He based his radical optimism on what he regards as a vital clue from one of the geniuses of the 20th century Albert Einstein. That clue is the theory of relativity, or E=mc2, where E is energy, m is mass and c is the velocity of light.
The Mandaluyong based chemical engineer says that Einstein's theory helped him perfect his gas-saving product, which he demonstrated recently before Baguio City motorists.
For Einstein relativity theory, from matter we can produce energy, he invented the aero-nitro power injector that took 15 years of Research and experiment.
The device, patented on December 11, 1985, has been marketed only recently through Energy Philippines Inc., a private firm, which Agco co-owns with other partners.
The said innovation can convert ordinary nitrogen (a non combustible substance) in the atmosphere into combustible nitro gas, and serves as gasoline and diesel additive in gaseous form for efficient engine combustion.
Aero-Nitro Power Injector is encased in a stainless steel cylinder, measuring five inches long and two inches in a diameter, which can be attached to the intake manifold of any diesel or gas engine.
The gadget will enhance engine performance, will eliminate smoke- belching and will provide stronger engine power and will save more fuel. [via]
