We are currently working on a biomass powered companion design to the zero-emission engine, US Patent 7,789,048. Calculating conversion of one pound of biomass to .5 KWh, it should be possible to provide the 30KWh per day used by the average houehold and enough stored/on-board produced electricty to daily power a small hybrid vehicle using only ten 20 pound sticks of wood or equivalent refuse. Green Science welcomes contact from interested persons, students and volunteers.
Green Science Corporation is a nonprofit group incorporated in Virginia and operating under 501(c)3 guidelines. We are focusing on developing and installing inventions relating to environmental improvement. The primary goals include designs for reduction of global warming which make energy and economic sense even in the event it is less of a problem than anticipated. We are currently pursuing a cooperative comparison with Stan Golunski, Cardiff University, Catalysis Institute concerning fuel reformation engines, led by Jacob for GSC.
FAQs for US Patent 7,789,048:
Is this a perpetual motion design?
No, the design is analogous to a refrigerator, where you are shifting a substance between phases. The heart of the converted engine is the recycling of the gases back into water, with no emissions. Energy inputs, similar to plugging in the refrigerator, are required. The beauty of the design is that energy inputs can be from sources with no operating cost, such as solar, or very low cost, such as biomass.
What can the converted engine produce?
Mechanical energy, to propel a vehicle for example, and/or electrical energy to power your home or recharge your alternate electrical vehicle.
Our first installation occured on March 8, 2008. A surfacewater filter/culvert made from used tires was put into operation. Constructed from used tires with a minimum of processing, labor and energy, the filter removes nutrient and pathogen loaded sediment from drainageways and small streams. It can also be used for irrigation of fields. We are looking for other new or untried designs which have become stalled in their implementation, and may not otherwise be utilized.
Goals are to identify and install as many new environmentally beneficial innovations as possible, evaluating each to determine which are most effective. Focusing on the most effective designs hopefully will lead to noticeable improvements in global warming, waterway sedimentation, nutrient enrichment and energy conservation. It is hoped these activities will encourage individuals with innovative ideas for improvement of our air, land and water.
