2021-07-28 Concentrated Solar Power, Solar PV

Thread from FB << Michael Burns Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is a totally different technology, which has a lot of operational advantages over PV, but still many disadvantages compared to other generation types. Functionally, CSP is simply thermal energy storage, so like a battery, when it’s “charged”, it can be included in the short term

David Cowlishaw It has been more than ten years since that article was written / published, but there still hasn’t been a “water powered car.” So what has been your excuse? You used the excuse that the “oil barons” took this invention and made it disappear. I know this for a fact. In the next

2021-07-12 CO2 To Syngas Using Sabatier Process

Read Applications section for pilot plants that use CO2 to make CH4 that can be used in the existing natural gas system. Also it’s being used to power a fleet of cars.

2021-07-10 Food Made From Captured Carbon

This is something I haven’t read about, a way to capture CO2 and use it and microbes to grow protein. https://www.dezeen.com/2021/06/29/carbon-solar-foods-pasi-vainikka-solein/ It says we exhale much of the carbon we eat. I started thinking about the possibility of someday we would wear a breathing apparatus that captures the CO2 we exhale and use something, possibly
