Genepax Co Ltd has unveiled a new breakthrough fuel cell system “Water Energy System (WES),” that uses water as a fuel and does not emit CO2.

The system uses Genepax's membrane electrode assembly (MEA), which contains a “material capable of breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen through a chemical reaction.”

During a press conference at the Osaka Assembly Hall on June 12, 2008, Genepax demonstrated a fuel cell stack with a rated output of 120W and a fuel cell system with a rated output of 300W. In the demonstration, Genepax powered the TV and the lighting equipment with a lead-acid battery charged by using the system.
