Malang (ANTARA News) – The Chemical Engineering Car (Chem-E-Car) technology developed by the Faculty of Engineering, Brawijaya University in Malang, East Java, is ready to compete in the 11th Asian National Chem-E-Car 2016 at the Technical University of Malaysia from April 8 to 9, 2016.

The supervisor of the team competition, Bambang Poerwadi, explained here on Saturday that the Chem-E-Car consists of four prototypes, namely Crionyc 3, Exotric VI, Exotric E-Cooler and Bharatawijaya.

“The four prototypes are feasible to compete after undergoing a series of tests and simulations,” Bambang said.

He added that the technology is deliberately designed for competition at Asia level, in Malaysia.

Bambang said he was optimistic that this year the Indonesian students team would be able to again bring the trophy home. “We really hope to be the number one. We are optimistic we can win again as we did last year,” he said.

According to him, the Chem-E-Car competition aims at utilizing the chemical reaction as alternative energy. “The energy we use now will eventually run out. Alternative energy is the answer to this problem,” he said.

Apart from competing in Malaysia, the Chem-E-Car is also prepared for the 5th Indonesia Chem-E-Car Competition (5th ICECC) 2016 which will be held in Surabaya Institute of Technology from April 23 to 24, 2016.

Bambang said the drivers already use neutralization reaction technique with different stopping mechanisms. Some use a light sensor and some just use a chemical reaction.

The development of chemical-fueled car prototype, he said, can provide an insight to the public on alternative energy, besides fuel energy, to ignite and drive cars.

This technology can be used as the basis to develop hybrid and electric cars that are environment-friendly.

Earlier, the Brawijaya University Chem-E-Car had won the first prize at a competition held at the University of Technology Petronas, Malaysia, and the second prize at the Chem-E-Car Competition in the Chemeca 2014 series conference organized by Engineering Australia.
