Inventor Rainer Partanen
The thought to investigate why electric cars are not more common
rose to Mr. Rainer Partanen in the late 1970's. He had worked all his
career in the metal industry. In 1982 he founded TIETOMETALLI OY,
a company which delivered various metals to the industry. Already
from the start Mr. Partanen left the management of his successful
company to his brother in order to be able to concentrate on his
The research phase lasted about 12 years. He studied the patents
related to electric vehicles and their source of power. Furthermore
he studied articles and books on the matter.
In the late 1980's after several tests the inventor knew where the solution could be and concentrated on researching technology the basis of which
was to release the energy of aluminium so that it could be recharged.
He founded for his inventing activities the company Ab Europositron Oy.
In the 1990's the final solution was found and development phase of
10 years began.
During that phase Rainer Partanen developed construction models,
where chemicals of the invention gave best possible result in releasing
and recharging the energy of aluminium. He had many subcontractors,
who supplied him with series of different components for development
As a result of this development phase Rainer Partanen has final construction
designs for two production ready batteries of which the function and reduction
of aluminium can be verified. The plan includes a prototype equivalent to
the present 12 V start battery of car and a battery for electric car with capacity
of 80 kWh.
The whole development work in the 1990's has been made within the limits
of Mr. Partanen's financial situation. All tests, equipment designs, material purchases and pending patents have been financed by the inventor himself.
