Every 3 minutes around the world there is a lightening strike – the most massive free power – driven by heavy rain. It turns water into Helium and oxygen.
1 H2O+TU->He2++O2+4e-+E2 lightening is electric
Water falling over 1m in a water fall does the same Molecular Nuclear Fusion – read my e-book on this. I have a master's degree in this area. And was doing a PhD at Sheffield when I found out a working steam engine does Molecular Nuclear Fusion. But there are easier ways.
I was away in Salford, writing songs and singing, and continues to work on this area. Now each lightening strike is a 1.5km long, 2cm wide steam plasma, that sparks into life at 8 atmospheres, and collapses at 3.
So it makes 5 tonnes of helium gas, from a steam plasma with an average pressure of 4 atmospheres. Here are the equations – skip if you do not have a PhD in physics and chemistry.
2 H2O+TU->2H++O2++4e- we form a plasma from regular water
3 1H++e- ->n0 hydrogen ions bond with the electrons to form neutrons
4 16O2++4n0 ->8H++6e- a fission chain, from oxygen into hydrogen ions
5 1H++r n0 ->Er3+L+X-ray the most massive release of carbon free energy in the universe
So this process I term a plasma burn. It does not have a flame, but it turns matter into massive heat and light. With no CO2 – carbon 0.
So a free plasma does a lightening strike, which is 1.2MW from a 50x1cm steam plasma. In a glass tube a steam plasma produces a constant 2.4MW, from a 50x1cm plasma tube.
Turning 2.6x10-17cc or regular water into heat every year. Carbon 0 heat – here the climate change have moved over to NOx (NO &NO2). Major source, lightening strikes. That have a surface temperature of 10millionoC. Read NOx – Wikipedia
More than the 1950 °C. of a diesel or petrol flame. Lightening strikes are a million times more potent that all the petrol and diesel engines in the world. So petrol engines produce as much NOx, and more CO2. Going back to petrol engines from diesel is a step backwards.
We can grow biodiesel – the original diesel engines ran on peanut oil. We dribble diesel down a titanium honey comb, we pass fracked natural gas up. And get out biopetrol – for 1/8th the cost of fuel oil from OPEC.
Bio petrol is a carbon 0 fuel. Only releasing the CO2 taken in last month, to grow the biodiesel. Fracked gas turns bacterial remains, into methane. So it is also a carbon 0 fuel source.
We could mix diesel gas with CO2 in a large, low pressure reactor, and draw out petrol vapour at the bottom, as the gas unburns, over 4 minutes.
6 C12H26+4CH4+E-P ->C16H34 at >350oC 1 atmosphere
So cheap biopetrol: just the sort of chemistry and biology the world needs. The Sabatier equation (6) was published 1910.
So biopetrol. High energy fuel oil, without OPEC. And remote communities can grow biodiesel, suck CO2 out of the cooled air, and make biopetrol. So carbon 0 petrol.
So we have our steam plasma tube, producing a constant 2.4MW. We drive a fan, to pass air across the tube. And stop it melting. We pass the air across a thermoelectric generator <380 sup="">o380>C. And we get out 144kW of carbon 0 electricity. Heat into power – no CO2.
No enriched uranium, or production of hyper toxic plutonium and strontium.
A steam plasma doing a plasma burn is 64 times more energetic, and totally non toxic. It produces no solid, hyper toxic radioactive waste.
So home users can set up a 50x1cm steam plasma and thermoelectric generator in an out house. And get at 144kW of carbon free power. The national grid will pay us 433,440 UK pounds for the excess power. Carbon free power for 18 houses.
So we take half a street of mains power. 2 such plants per major street, and we take the town off grid.
During the day, all the power drives industry – though they will obviously have their own plant, and get a cheque for 215,000 UK pounds a year. For their excess power.
Or they run on three shifts, and generate all their own heat, power and light. A carbon free world.
