Distributed Manufacture

MDI production concept distributed throughtout the licence area.


The MDI modern technical construction uses compressed air power, lighter composite materials, vehicles with integrated functions, and the modular component assembly. For both vehicles and distributed energy storage this leads very well to decentralised manufacture. 

Distributed country, regional or provincial manufacture provides many local community benefits. 

And it also leads to potentially cheaper and cleaner products and manufacture. And a much lower overall carbon footprint.

Factories are small, requiring only 4,500 square meters along with surrounding space.  

For vehicle manufacture the capital cost is hugely less than traditional manufacture, and there are not the substantial shipping, delivery and warehousing overheads of global distribution. Also on the energy side by providing distributed storage systems this eliminates the large overheads of centralised utility energy transmission that exists today.4,5

A fresh concept in manufacturing with multiple advantages

The MDI innovative production concept enables uniform small manufacturing plants to be spread across an appropriate geography, whilst still enabling the integration of centralised functions and research. The benefits are substantial.

  • 80% of the vehicle is built in situ. 
  • A central purchasing office for the suppliers of the remaining 20%. 
  • Generated wealth can remain in the producing country. 
  • A larger locally based workforce sharing in the revenue.
  • Lower logistics levels and management costs through micro factories. 
  • Smaller areas occupied by the smaller factory building and overall reduced land size required. 
  • Lower CO2 emissions and pollution emissions caused by less transferal of finished vehicles and raw materials. 

Air Future’s licence area:

  • AFG is planning a number of factories, distributed throughout our licence area including Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
  • Air Future’s, manufacture will be distributed via local small turnkey factories employing local people and business services. This creates a low capital cost, lower risk, and high profitability without subsidies. 

Our factories - the MDI concept

The opposite of the classic approach to car manufacturing
and its centralisation of vast production factories.

Factories are small with a full factory building of 4,500 square metres. Total land requirement is approximately 15,000 square metres. The factories are turnkey (readily installed as a package). 

These production facilities can be built at a realistic price and are profitable very early, following the start-up phase, due to the advanced technology used.

By providing employment and enabling local supply of services, local manufacture becomes both politically and economically attractive. So the only consideration becomes sales, and that can be well regionally planned in advance. 

 Manufacturing has multiple levels of flexibility catering to sales and production volumes. For vehicles the entry-level factory breaks even at a low volume, and can produce 1,000 vehicles per annum at one shift, or 2,000 at two shifts. It can then modularly be expanded for full factory production of 5,200 vehicles per annum. Energy unit production is even more flexible.

The capital cost of the factory can similarly be matched to the progressive production. The cost is minimum compared to traditional vehicle manufacture, and the nature of production operations generates high net profit margin, net of costs, expenses and licence royalties.
