Discussions for the provisions of manned lunar or Martian bases often center around the placement of various types of early stage settlement habitats, ranging from the cylindrical surface based “tuna can” of the Mars Society to an adaptable and expedient deployment of lightweight inflatable or aerogel rigidizable structures.
To date, hydrogen generation for fuel cells has required electricity generated by burning fossil fuels or inefficient solar cells. This invention (US Patent 6,843,903) enables electrolysis of water using the energy of solar photons to partially replace the energy of the applied current.
Breakthrough Bio Fuel and Bio Chemical Production Process
Overview: Researchers at Montana State University – Northern have developed a low energy chemical cracking process which converts plant oils to advanced transportation fuels (drop in) and oleo-chemical precursors.
Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH has worked for many years in the field of fuel cell technology and developed innovative solutions in the stationary as well as in the field of maritime and mobile applications for the pressing issues to alternative and environmentally friendly ways of power generation and
The Frostless Heat Pump and sequence saves approximately 10% of energy expended in the heating mode of a refrigeration cycle heat pump. Energy savings are achieved through the anticipation and prevention of frost on the outdoor coil, while the unit is in-cycle, heating the target load.
