ELMSFORD — Sadeg M. Faris envisions a fuel cell revolution.

But the revolution, as Faris sees it, will not be based on the much-touted hydrogen fuel cells, but rather metal fuel cells, which harness the power of metals like aluminum, magnesium, nickel and zinc.

Fuel cells, which are not yet widely available for consumer use, are mini power plants. At home, they could be used to power appliances, allowing people to disconnect their houses from the power grid. In buses, cars and scooters, they could replace petroleum as a fuel source.
