This machine is based off of electrolysis that has been a known format of extracting hydrogen. We know about electrolysis and how it works. The question is have we done all that we can. I propose a different way of thinking about the process. What if we could introduce a combustible gas that will ignite with the electrolysis process and move it mechanically through a system that will aid in the extraction process?

The flow would start with water, gases and the electricity flowing through a combustion chamber. The electrolysis ignites the gases and starts a flow of water that would push out the back causing the rear blades to rotate which would force the forward blades to rotate ...

The average distance fresh food travels before being purchased and consumed in the US is over 1,000 miles. This huge distance creates numerous problems, including increased emissions due to transportation, spoilage of goods, and reduced product quality. Perhaps more unnerving is the disconnection we have with food. This disconnect in the food cycle creates a dangerous environmental feedback loop and puts healthy ecosystems at risk. What is needed is a reconnection of food growth with everyday life.

The hydroponic screen wall (HSW) system attempts to reunite food growth and human interaction. The HSW is an interior garden wall, which is composed of interconnected, self-contained modular units. Each modular unit is a single cast piece, which contains the ...

Currently the use of inconstant power sources, such as wind turbines, is needlessly expensive and "hi-tech." Turbine blades resemble airliner wings, and the turbines require transmissions, electric generators (with imported rare earths), and fancy electronics, etc. for phase matching to the electrical grid. The electrical power so generated cannot be stored. Better is a system which uses well understood "19th century" technology suitable for less developed industrial countries. Potable water is a byproduct.

Using the example of a wind farm of horizontal axis turbines, the system consists of turbines with a novel blade design, to provide easily controlled torque and directly driven steam-cooled air compressors, similar to diesel engines. Insulated pipes direct the compressed air to a central storage ...

Friction has finally been overcome by application of a novel, spherical NanoDiamond coating applied to sustainable energy, primarily Windpower Gear-boxes and Bearings. Additional benefits are ultra high efficiency and extremely long part life, as metal on metal contact is virtually removed. One outside lab test has shown in excess of 30 time life extension over synthetic oil – however the true potential could not be determined as the test was stopped early due to a burned out test-bed motor. A test at Corrigan Manufacturing on a hydraulic press showed an increase in press cycle speed of 81% within 6 Minutes of treatment, providing an unexpected increase in productivity.

Any friction surface could benefit using spherical NanoDiamond Coatings and market ...

THE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE: WE USE SOLAR POWER TO PRODUCE ENERGY TO CHILL WATER IN A WATER TANK TO BELOW DEW POINT. FROM THE TANK, THE CHILLED WATER FLOWS IN A CLOSED CYCLE (WITH THE HELP OF A SMALL PUMP) IN BLIND PIPES, PLACED IN PARALLEL NEAR THE PLANTS, ON THE SOIL AND NEAR THE ROOTS, TO PRODUCE CONDENSATION ON THE SURFACE OF THE PIPES, PERODUCED DUE TO THE TEMP. DIFFERNCES BETWEEN THE COLD WATER IN THE PIPES AND THE HOT AND HUMID ENVIRONMENT DURING THE SUMMER. IT IS A SIMILAR EFFECT AS SEEN ON ICE COFFEE CUP DURING THE SUMMER WITH THE PUDDLE LEFT ON THE TABLE.

THE CONEDNSATE FROM THE HUMIDITY IN THE AIR ON ...

World population is estimated at over 7 billion people. Global population is expected to peak at approximately 10 billion people. Many millions of people are currently starving, malnourished and don't have access to safe drinking water.

Water tends to be scarcest where it is needed the most, i.e. the Middle East, Australia, the Sahara Desert, Northern Mexico, the Atacama Desert, the Namib Desert and so forth. All of these regions could be productive farmland if they had access to fresh water. All of these regions border bodies of salt water.

Restricted access to fresh water can lead to war.

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a method of removing minerals from water with the use of membranes and pressure differentials. RO ...

LIGHTING BOLTS IN A BOX

There is a distinct world?wide need for a technology that can offer an exponential advance in electric energy storage above and beyond the basic technologies of Lithium?based batteries and ultra?capacitors. Such a revolutionary advance should far surpass and exceed the electric energy storage capabilities of Lithium?based and chemical batteries and those of double layer type ultra?capacitors, as well as reducing the amount of atmospheric and environmental pollution (with subsequent climate disruption) from the combustion of fossil fuels.

I have discovered such a technology in the form of solid state prototype compositions made into devices that have the potential to revolutionize the world of electric energy storage and possibly reverse or slow down the negative ...

The lightning-laser magnetically-pinched nuclear-fusion power generator emits an air ionizing laser beam such as an ultraviolet laser beam towards the sky. This air ionizing beam produces an ionized conductive column(s) of air which conducts an artificial lightning, high voltage, high alternating frequency electrical current produced by a first tesla coil into the sky, clouds, and ionosphere via single, dual beam(s), or 3 phase conductive channel(s). This ionized electrically conductive lightning laser beam is swept by a nonconductive reflecting means (motorized or electro-optically modulated) through the sky atlocations where there's lots of lightning such as Lightning Alley in Florida or in the Congo. Natural lightning is attracted to and will strike the electrically conductive lightning laser beam plasma column(s). A ...

In summary, this invention can greatly reduce PV system cost. A low cost PV system is self sustainable and makes the cost of renewable PV energy comparable or lower than conventional sources. The market potential is enormous. The current Concentrating Photovoltaic (CPV) systems have not achieved their intended goals in reducing the PV system cost. The main reason is the high cost of the precision 2-D tracking which becomes the major cost component. My invention is to replace the precision 2-D with a simple and imprecision 1-D tracking, thus greatly reducing the total installed system cost.

This invention is the first ever proposed by utilizing the special property of small frame linear Fresnel lens and a special tracking arrangement. When ...

Thermal Charge Pump (Energy Conversion via Second-Order Quantum Coupling)

One of my primary interests has always been the conversion of low-grade or waste heat, and heat from lightly concentrated solar flux (i.e., temperatures between 100-500 degrees C), since the ability to efficiently recoup or convert such readily available energy at a low capital cost would be most beneficial to society. To that end, my work has involved the study of non-isothermal electron and phonon transport in thick-films, granular bulk layer formation, deep level defect centers and trap formation, and this has led to a newly discovered and patentable thermal charge pump (TCP), which could become the technology of choice for thermal to electrical energy conversion, enabling low temperature heat ...
