The new water-hydrogen engine, produced by the Chin

Youngman Automobile Group Co, has been the subject of visits from top city officials

and been praised by Zhang Wenshen, Party chief in Nanyang, according to the report.

Following the report, the engine sparked discussion and debate, because it runs contrary to the principles of physics.

Nanyang’s bureau of industry and information technology said the report made mis

takes and conveyed incorrect information, ultimately misleading readers, Beijing News reported.

The bureau highlighted that the project is still being tested and has yet to gain approval from industrial

authorities, adding that the production company’s head has been required to fully explain the technology behind the engine.

Pang Qingnian, 61, chairman of the China Yongman Automobile Group, said the project was established in 2006, and that the e

ngines can convert water into hydrogen and then use the hydrogen to generate electricity, which then fuels vehicles.
