Current US Federal DOT regulations treat all vehicle batteries the same. Even very safe, non-volatile battery chemistries like LFP and LTO are categorized the same as those that are much more volatile, dangerous and potentially toxic. This poses obstacles to the development of our Nomadic mobile charging™️ vehicles. A vehicle design that could have required large amounts of batteries positioned in a cargo space —under the current view of the Federal Laws, could be constituted as hazardous materials transportation and presented us with considerable hurdles to make sure we remain in compliance. This is a broad problem, that is largely due to the vague definitions and lack of Lithium battery class distinctions in current US Federal and State Laws.
Fuel-cells are a transitional solution to energy generation and delivery. As of this writing the energy density of most common Biofuels exceed that of any current battery technologies generally by an minimum order of 25x more watt hours per liter. The use of Biofuel presents the opportunity for our EV networks to extend services into a wide rural area surrounding metropolitan centers while storing all the required energy in a traditional liquid fuel tank. The distribution of dense energy then becomes feasible with little or zero added infrastructure, as the current liquid fuel distribution supply-chain is matured and fully scaled, world-wide. A similar strategy has been implemented in China by Bo Hydrogen Technology who have illustrated a successful deployment track record of over 3 years. This technology embodies a highly suitable stopgap solution while US and international regulations adapt and domestic battery technologies and supply improve. Biofuel-cells produce only a single gaseous emission, CO2. Green Biofuels such as Methanol can be produced by a number of sustainable methods regionally. Methanol could find support among rural timber producing communities of the Pacific Northwest by creating a high value economy from waste distillation of biological feed stocks such as wood, paper or hemp pulp. Biofuel acquired via these methods is a carbon neutral energy source. Emissions and residual carbon footprint will be further offset by green initiatives Teknomadix will initiate and invest in such as recycling and reforestation efforts.
Supercapacitors do not require the same reactive chemicals as batteries and could serve as a means of storing direct electrical energy without the same regulatory and resource obstacles of lithium batteries. Similar to a battery bank, these devices need to be housed securely within an enclosure with mechanistic high-voltage safety disconnects. Some challenges still exist with current Supercapacitor technologies. For example, they typically have less than 25% of the energy density as compared to that of lithium batteries. Unlike a lithium battery, the capacitors are capable of recharging almost instantaneously. Teknomadix recognize Supercapacitors as a synergistic compliment to the Biofuel-cell technology in our hybrid vehicle platform design plans. Due to the fact that Supercapacitors weigh considerably less than lithium batteries, we are able to reduce the manufacturing and operating cost of our envisioned Nomadic charge™️ vehicle service network.
The demand for clean reliable energy supplies for this new emergent class of electric powered vehicles increases every day. Teknomadix aims to be able to meet the demands of service subscribers, investors, environmental initiatives and most importantly the world population's demands of global reduction of carbon emissions.
During the first year of operation we hypothesize our Nomadic charge™️ service prototypes will be rolled out to select Northwestern metropolitan areas. Our hybridized energy delivery service platform would excel beyond competitors abilities by reaching much larger suburban and rural areas as well as maintaining consistent fast-charge subscriber coverage in established metropolitan markets. As the network grew into a second year of service we predict large reinvestments to maximize growth to allow the Teknomadix services to reach the 25 most populated metropolitan areas in the United States. By the end of the third year of growth we estimate to have achieved complete US market saturation with our service network in all 50 states. This is our vision of rapid growth to realize an American Zero Emissions future.
