Ignoring the solution cannot be a risk worth taking as living species depend upon the right choice for continued existence. The argument is unimportant : decreasing the rapidly increasing polluting carbon dioxide emissions from extracted fossil-fuels is the real problem solution.
Scientists are unaware that the solution is available now. In Steven’s Process CO2 emissions are trapped and re-used by converting them back to CH4 (methane) fuel again and again and reburned instead of dumping them into our atmosphere and extracting more and more new natural fossil fuels for fuel.
The development of renewable energy sources is expensive and is unlikely to produce sufficient energy in time to substitute or replace the use of fossil fuels or contain global warming temperatures below the maximum 2oC increase required. Serious attempts have been implemented but their impact has not been sufficient to indicate that new coal, oil and NLG resources aren't still necessary. More fossil-fuel resources continue to be used by increasing numbers of power stations and furnaces as sources of energy.
The developed processes of CCS and CCSU are on the right track. The question and the problem are what to do with the carbon dioxide captured. This can be resolved by trapping and recycling the carbon dioxide repetitively and using the clean energy created each time without CO2 , NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) & SOx (Sulphur Oxides) polluting emissions.
Many skeptics have hitherto been convinced that the laws of Thermodynamics prevent such processes from being possible viably. The new process, invented by chemical engineer Steven Wolfowitz, actually proves that in certain cases, notably in gasified power stations, the thermodynamic energy costs are infinitesimal in comparison with the wasted costs incurred currently by these operations to generate electricity. In these electricity producers both H2 and CO2 are produced which can be reused as CH4 (effectively LPGas) to refuel the power stations instead of using expensive new fossil-fuels.
We need Electricity. Power Stations produce Electricity. Power Stations produce CO2 Emissions. The Scientifically Proven CO2 Recycling Process converts CO2 to CH4 which can be used instead of more new expensive fossil fuels to fire the Power Stations far more cheaply again and again. The costs of Finding, Transporting and Purchasing more new Fossil Fuels are eliminated Saving Money and reducing electricity costs. CO2 emissions are thereby eliminated because the Carbon C is recycled to methane CH4 instead of being emitted as CO2. Thus no emissions.
Gasified Power Stations produce Electricity, Hydrogen and Oxygen. This Hydrogen can be used with the CO2 Emissions to make CH2 to reburn as Much Cheaper Fuel for the Power Stations by the Scientifically Proven CO2 Recycling Technology.
The CO2 Recycling Process is a separate Add-On Process to the existing Power Station Processes. Its Thermodynamic Energy requirements are miniscule compared with existing Power Station Costs. Therefore the Combined Processes save Current Costs of Electricity Production resulting in:
Lower Energy Costs
Clean Electricity and Energy
Dramatically reduced Fossil Fuel Use
Most Probably less Climate Change
No Pollution from CO2 Emissions, Sulphur & Nitrous Emissions
Proven results to reconvert CO2 to CH4 were obtained at Regensburg University in Bavaria, Germany after seven years of R&D. In fossil-fueled power stations electricity obtained by burning fossil-fuels is obtained but the CO2 also produced is just dumped into our atmosphere. The carbon, which can be recycled, is just wasted. Currently:
With the new process the Carbon, C, is not dumped into our atmosphere - it is repeatedly recycled and reburned:
Steven’s mission is to bring the benefits of this technology to the attention of those powers and authorities capable of implementing and developing it for the benefit of Humanity and all Life species. By ensuring that Clean Electricity is produced without using fossil-fuels, the use of this electricity to fuel electric cars, ships, planes, furnaces, etc., means their CO2 emissions will also be reduced in time. New industries will emerge and develop to produce employment and the world will have a far safer atmosphere and environment. Steven will have achieved his mission.
