Multiple Designer Fuels Produced at Scale from Seawater
Multiple Designer Fuels Produced at Scale from Seawater
For all who ever spent three suspenseful hours of their life they will never get back driving ships alongside transferring fuel; maneuvered under the air tanker to "catch the cone;" fought the surf filling a fuel bladder on the beach; risked death by explosion or electrocution whilst performing the un-natural act of helicopter in-flight refueling (HIFR); or waited for the C-17 to land with the gas…….. take a few minutes to hit the below link, read this and watch the videos………… it is real………….
NRL (known inside the Navy as "nuts running loose") has developed (note past tense) a proven catalytic process to manufacture, WHERE AND WHEN REQUIRED, multiple types of fuel FROM SEAWATER!
For the record, it took me a while to get used to reverse osmosis desalination as well, until I took it out of my rucksack and used it on the Appalachian Trail.
The technology is less than 10 years away from deployment.
Enjoy and contemplate.
IVO this evolving capability…….. nuclear power…… Quo Vadis?

   The goal is to have a much smaller mailing list and more people reading The Oakleaf online by mid 2014. Opting out of the paper copy will help the Foundation save money by cutting mailing and printing costs.
