Fossil Fuels all contain methane, CH4, which is burned in power stations to produce electricity, and in furnaces producing steel, cement, etc. These industrial processes convert the CH4 into CO2 which is mainly emitted into our atmosphere and is highly polluting. Most scientists believe this causes Global Warming and Climate Change which, if not curtailed can have extremely deleterious effects on all Life.
A global conference, COP21, was held a year ago in Paris where attendees representing 196 nations around the World agreed to join in reducing CO2 emissions and progressively reducing fossil fuel extractions and use. Not much progress has been achieved simply because effective technology is unknown to the powers which have the ability to implement it.
The purpose of this website is to expose the new scientific invention which will accomplish these aspirations to facilitate its implementation and use. In fact CO2 Emissions from Fossil Fuelled (Coal, Oil, Gas) Power Stations can be Recycled as Clean Fuel CH4 over and over again and eventually eliminated by the New Technology.
Wasted CO2 and Steam emitted to our atmosphere by Fossil-Fuel Power Stations can all be reused. Currently:
Instead: With the new invention process the Carbon, C, is not dumped into our atmosphere - it is repeatedly recycled and reburned:
Hydrogen, H2, produced by the gasification process already used in modern power stations, is used to convert the CO2 back into methane, CH4 by a unique special methanogenesis process (simply, the microbiological conversion of CO2 and H2 into CH4 and O2 by microbial methanogens);
The Oxygen, O2, produced during this microbiological methanogenesis process is used to re-burn the CH4 repeatedly over and over again much more efficiently than air which produces sulphides and nitrogen oxides which just pollute our atmosphere more, so these SOx & NOx harmful emissions are also eliminated;
Since the CO2 is currently a waste product which should not be dumped pollutingly into our air it can instead be donated by the power stations for recycling using the new technology process. The power stations reduce their carbon footprint, avoid penalties like carbon taxes, and help to save our planet.
The Oxygen produced by the new technology can enhance the furnace CH4 burning process efficiency since it is 100% pure and 5 times more concentrated in oxygen than air currently used in the furnaces – at no extra cost.
Gasified power stations also produce Oxygen O2 which can be used for re-burning methane as well, and also Hydrogen H2 which can also be used in the invention process. The methanogens readily use H2 and CO2 to produce CH4 and O2 for re-burning under the conditions discovered by the new invention.
To achieve the relatively low temperatures required for the new technology the steam heat, part of which is currently wasted in the existing power stations' cooling towers, can be used to supply the process using heat exchangers.
The new technology produces Methane, (CH4), and Oxygen, (O2), simultaneously and separately, without the need for any additional expensive separation procedures.
The new process invention involves a Microbiological Process (it is not a Biomass Process) and since the methanogens involved multiply themselves and grow concentrations very rapidly under the technology process conditions, this requirement is easily satisfied. No agricultural products need to be grown or used.
The new technology plants can be rapidly constructed using 3D printing and other conventional engineering manufacturing processes.
Expensive searches for more and more fossil fuels, their expensive transportation and their pollution of our atmosphere by furnaces and power stations can be eliminated.
Electricity produced by this enhanced process is really clean energy so when used to drive electric cars, domestic requirements, etc., those uses also become clean.
New industries and work/employment opportunities globally can be established.
The World needs to become aware of the availability of this new important new technology so it can be implemented in time to save Humanity and our world.

The developed processes of CCS and CCSU are on the right track and the technology is widely available. The problem is what to do with the carbon dioxide captured. The current thinking is concerned about the costs of piping, long distance transportation, and volume recipient containment which are absolutely true. The new invention Process eliminates these costly activities and costs. This can be resolved by trapping and recycling the carbon dioxide repeatedly and using the energy created each time.
