Could this be the NEW ENERGY producer? …….. CLEAN COAL????

Posted: February 21, 2013 in Uncategorized

Start tearing down all the useless Wind Turbines and STOP trying to introduce the so-called “Renewable Energy experiment ” that has so far, basically ruined the very energy sector in every country in the world that has tried it!

Here’s new technology that is being built on old technology and proves that when faced with a problem, basically people, not Governments, come to the rescue with an answer!

In fact I would go so far to say when Government’s attempt to “innovate and create jobs along with forcing a new agenda down the throats of it’s citizens, it is usually a 100%  FAILURE!”

Look at Ontario. Like Germany, Britain, Spain and Denmark along with every other country that has embraced Wind power generation, they are ending up as financial basket cases and are facing massive law suits for decades to come for making their very citizens ill and causing harm that is acknowledged by everyone except the politicians who are raping the citizens for their precious dollars!!!!!

This Green Energy Scam is one of the most criminally insane acts perpetrated against the people of the world that anyone who even suggests that this Green Energy is good or necessary should also be judged a CRIMINAL!

Here’s some good news for a change and if this works like it is supposed to, coal plants will not only remain open, they will be expanded!

New Coal Technology Harnesses Energy Without Burning, Nears Pilot-Scale Development 

The Ohio State University2/5/13

COLUMBUS, Ohio—A new form of clean coal technology reached an important milestone recently, with the successful operation of a research-scale combustion system at Ohio State University. The technology is now ready for testing at a larger scale.

For 203 continuous hours, the Ohio State combustion unit produced heat from coal while capturing 99 percent of the carbon dioxide produced in the reaction.

Liang-Shih Fan, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and director of Ohio State’s Clean Coal Research Laboratory,pioneered the technology called Coal-Direct Chemical Looping (CDCL), which chemically harnesses coal’s energy and efficiently contains the carbon dioxide produced before it can be released into the atmosphere.

“In the simplest sense, combustion is a chemical reaction that consumes oxygen and produces heat,” Fan said. “Unfortunately, it also produces carbon dioxide, which is difficult to capture and bad for the environment. So we found a way to release the heat without burning. We carefully control the chemical reaction so that the coal never burns—it is consumed chemically, and the carbon dioxide is entirely contained inside the reactor.”

Dawei Wang, a research associate and one of the group’s team leaders, described the technology’s potential benefits. “The commercial-scale CDCL plant could really promote our energy independence. Not only can we use America’s natural resources such as Ohio coal, but we can keep our air clean and spur the economy with jobs,” he said.

“We carefully control the chemical reaction so that the coal never burns—it is consumed chemically, and the carbon dioxide is entirely contained inside the reactor.”


Though other laboratories around the world are trying to develop similar technology to directly convert coal to electricity, Fan’s lab is unique in the way it processes fossil fuels. The Ohio State group typically studies coal in the two forms that are already commonly available to the power industry: crushed coal “feedstock,” and coal-derived syngas.

The latter fuel has been successfully studied in a second sub-pilot research-scale unit, through a similar process called Syngas Chemical Looping (SCL).  Both units are located in a building on Ohio State’s Columbus campus, and each is contained in a 25-foot-high insulated metal cylinder that resembles a very tall home water heater tank.

No other lab has continuously operated a coal-direct chemical looping unit as long as the Ohio State lab did last September. But as doctoral student Elena Chung explained, the experiment could have continued.

“We voluntarily chose to stop the unit. We actually could have run longer, but honestly, it was a mutual decision by Dr. Fan and the students. It was a long and tiring week where we all shared shifts,” she said.

Fan agreed that the nine-day experiment was a success. “In the two years we’ve been running the sub-pilot plants, our CDCL and SCL units have achieved a combined 830 operating hours, which clearly demonstrates the reliability and operability of our design,” he said.

At any one time, the units each produce about 25 thermal kilowatts—that is, thermal energy, which in a full-scale power plant would be used to heat water and turn the steam-powered turbines that create electricity.

The researchers are about to take their technology to the next level: a larger-scale pilot plant is under construction at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Carbon Capture Center in Wilsonville, AL. Set to begin operations in late 2013, that plant will produce 250 thermal kilowatts using syngas.
